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 Rich Text Format
The Rich Text Format originated in the Microsoft Word Development team in 1987. It was developed for cross-platform document interchange with other products from Microsoft. You could say it’s the light version of Word files. Still proprietary, but less feature rich. It has more features than a plain text file, that’s why it has rich in the name though. There hasn’t been a change since 2008 (Version 1.9.1). It’s not dead though. Every once in a while there comes a small file with a .rtf extension. When you see such a file, you know it’s a Rich Text Format file. One cool thing: RTF files are human-readable. It’s not some binary file, it’s a plain text based markup format.The files end with
