Converting from Word
Not sure if the world would be a better place without Microsoft Word, but I guess we’ll never find out. It’s here and it’s here to stay. Every fricking office computer has Word on it. Techies hate it, because it’s not really machine-readable, it’s proprietary and there is no documented standard. Office people love it though. There are not limits. Put text in it, fine. Add images, no problem. Want to switch the font to Comic Sans? Sure! Make a creative layout, amazing! Do whatever you like. But don’t forget to convert it to a proper file format before you send it to a techie.
The files end with
.docx 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
.xml by default.
