Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your EPUB files and convert them to Journal Article Tag Suite XML files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from EPUB
EPUB is an e-book file format that is actually based on a ton of other formats like XML, XHTML, DTBook, SVG, CSS, NCX (What the hell is this?), Dublin Core (sounds bad ass) and Zip. Oh man, I’m not sure if there is a text format that is a combination of more formats than EPUB. It’s like someone tried to combine every fricking format out there. Couldn’t they stick with fewer file formats? Anyway, we have this free online converter here. Not sure if it works, but just upload your file and we’ll see what we can do. I have to google if there is a book about EPUB. This history of the greatest text format of all times. Or something like that.
The files end with
.epub by default.
Converting to Journal Article Tag Suite XML
The Journal Article Tag Suite (JATS) is an XML format, mostly used to describe scientific literature. The JATS provides XML elements and attributes for describing the textual and graphical content of journal articles and some non-article material such as letters, editorials, and book and product reviews. It is a technical standard developed by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) and approved by the American National Standards Institute with the code Z39.96-2012. If you see someone on the street wearing a Z39.96-2012 T-shirt, it’s probably a big fan of JATS. Though, I’m not sure if those shirts exist. Maybe we should print those.The files end with
.xmlby default. More about Journal Article Tag Suite XML files
