Converting from 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 .xml by default.

Converting to AsciiDoc

AsciiDoc is like the older brother of Markdown. It’s human-readable without any special tools. It’s like DocBook XML, but based on plain-text mark-up (instead of XML). Add an = in front of a line to mark it as headline. It’s easy like that. Wondering who uses this text format? Wikipedia states that the Git documentation is written in AsciiDoc. I’m not Wikipedia or near as clever, but you landed here and chances are high that you are in the club of people using AsciiDoc. Or maybe you just have to use this format. No matter what, just upload the file and convert it to any other format. Hope it helps!

The files end with .asciidoc by default. More about AsciiDoc files
