A guest presentation from XUG 2018
Your books are complex, specialized, high-touch, and often highly individual. They’re also important contributions to their fields that need to be discoverable, accessible, on time, and future-proof! Yesterday’s production workflows can’t meet the challenges of tomorrow’s books—but disrupting time-honored systems can be a daunting challenge.
Inera offers proven, easy-to-use software solutions for publishers of scholarly books, implemented by university presses, academic publishers, and commercial publishers around the world. We’ve been through the workflow change process many times, and we know you know your books best!
With an eXtyles Custom implementation, based on BITS or another DTD suited to your content, we can make sure your XML workflow works for all the books on your list.
Setting aside the fact that eXtyles admirably performs as advertised, what I appreciate about the Inera team is that they come through on their promises: deliverables arrive when expected and run as expected.
In this video, Bruce Rosenblum and Typefi’s Eric Damitz demystify JATS and BITS. Their presentation demonstrates an eXtyles-Typefi workflow, showing how to leverage these complementary solutions to simplify editorial and publishing processes, dramatically speed up production, and produce quality XML—without any additional effort or specialized XML knowledge.
These slides from Bruce Rosenblum and Typefi’s Chandi Perera explore a key workflow question: When and where should you introduce XML into your workflow: during authoring, before editing, before composition, or after publication? Bruce and Chandi’s presentation covers the pros and cons of each approach, including publisher case studies with an emphasis on lessons learned from various workflow failures and successes.
