Introducing the Migrate Word to JATS web conversion service

A new approach for XML content conversion

XML content conversion workflows have long been established in the scholarly publishing community with publishers typically electing to use one or a mix of outsourced services, third-party software or custom-developed scripts. These different approaches have served the community well over recent years, but Stilo’s Word to JATS Migrate web service now provides a radically different approach to help publishers significantly reduce their ongoing conversion costs and associated production times.

The Migrate JATS hosted web service enables journal, academic and book publishers to automate the conversion of documents authored in Word to the JATS XML specification, as part of a publishing workflow. The service is available in the cloud or on-premise, and is accessible 24/7. Benefit from immediate turnaround times for document conversion, with full user control over conversion results and content quality.

Why Stilo Migrate?

Migrate has been established in the XML DITA (Darwin Information Typing Architecture) community for many years, enabling publishers of technical documentation to reduce conversion turnaround times & costs and gain full control over content quality. It is this success within the DITA community that has inspired us to develop the Migrate JATS service for scholarly publishers.

Balisage 2017 Symposium | July 31, 2017, Rockville MD

Up-translation and up-transformation: tasks, challenges, and solutions
a Balisage pre-conference symposium

Stilo's Conversion Services Manager, Helen St. Denis will be providing a demo of the Migrate cloud XML content conversion service and available to answer any questions attendees may have on content conversion. Visit the symposium website for more information on this and Balisage 2017.

About the symposium

Document users sometimes find that the formats of the documents available are not rich enough to support their intended uses. Conversion of content and/or increasing the specificity of markup is an important task in many different content and information workflows. Markup transformations can involve high-level structuring, detailed component structuring, and/or enhancing information by inserting or matching or linking to external vocabularies or data. Enhancing markup presents numerous challenges including lack of structure of the inputs or inconsistency of input data down to the level of spelling, punctuation, and vocabulary. Sources for up-translation may be XML, word processing documents, or just plain text.

The range of approaches to up-transformation is as varied as the specifics of the input and required outputs. Solutions may combine automated processing with human review or could be 100% software implementations. Transformations can require maintenance and evolution as content practices and standards evolve over time.

The presentations in this pre-conference symposium will include goals, challenges, solutions, and workflows for transformation and significant XML enhancement, including approaches, tools, and techniques. Topics include content types such as LaTeX, MS Word XML, RTF, HTML, TEI, DITA, JATS, BITS and workflows for existing content and new content. HTML as a robust intermediate format will be a major topic. The symposium will also include a session of demos of conversion tools.
