XML-based editorial workflow ( or how to extract more value from the same source ) ? Teodor Georgiev & Lyubomir Penev Pensoft Publishers info @ pensoft.net Workpackage 6 Scholarly publishing ViBRANT Virtual Biodiversity
Who we are & what we do
Pensoft Publishers enters VIBRANT with:
Elaborated XML-based editorial workflow based on the TaxPub, that generates HTML and NLM-compliant XML versions of each paper, beyond the PDF
The workflow also includes tools for tagging and consequent semantic enhancements to taxonomic texts
Several tools for automated export and harvesting of the published information
A web crawler for creating a taxon profile “on the fly”
A prototype of manuscript generation from Scratchpads was elaborated and published in July 2010
A prototype of data paper manuscript from GBIF is under active development
Experienced and motivated staff
What we will do in ViBRANT
The ViBRANT Challenges:
Creating authoring tools that will facilitate creating manuscripts in XML – from Scratchpads, GBIF, vSysLab database, authors’ databases, HTML form, etc.
P rovide an online open peer-review and editorial system that will automate the process at the possible and reasonable maximum
Make the published content disseminated as widely as possible, through the existing and newly developed tools
Make the platform widely used by taxonomic journals
How we will do that? Source : Blagoderov et al . 2010, ZooKeys 50.
Who are our users & how will they engage?
Users of our services will are:
t axonomists as authors, content management platform for indexing and aggregating biodiversity information (Scrat c hpads, GBIF, vSysLab, Leifedesks, etc.); electronic registers of nomenclatural acts (IPNI, Mycobank, ZooBank); ecologists, conservationists; bibliographic databases
of 5 Usage Engag e ment Metrics Number of manuscripts submitted and published via the Biodiversity Data Journal Number visits on BDJ Number of users who automatically index the published information
