Revolutionizing The Article Workflow
We realized it was time to create a better article workflow for authors and editors – one that superseded the cumbersome and redundant process of using the static, print-ready PDF as the vehicle for editing.
ArticleExpress™ is that platform. Unlike traditional PDF proofs where authors are required to mark up the proof with annotations, ArticleExpress allows authors to make edits directly to their content without having any knowledge of XML in order to edit. Structured elements, like citations and references, are edited through forms that make changes easy for authors to apply while also ensuring that the underlying XML is updated correctly.
In addition, a set of advanced editing tools allow users to insert a range of new structured elements into an article while still maintaining the XML structure.
We’ve built in a selection of widgets to let you easily handle a number of tasks, like general navigation, author query response, comment insertion and tutorial review. For instance, the Author Query Widget allows the user to find the query location within the article and respond appropriately. Comments can be inserted anywhere in the article, and once created, can be edited or deleted by the user.
The ArticleExpress collaboration system allows corresponding authors to share and manage access to their article with co-authors.
Editing the document is easy for authors, but be assured that unwanted or excessive edits won’t make it through to publication without your approval. ArticleExpress includes a comprehensive change tracking system that allows the production editor to review all changes and accept, reject, or modify them before proceeding to publication.
And while ArticleExpress focuses on the HTML presentation, we haven’t forgotten the importance of the composed PDF. Included in ArticleExpress is a fully automated, XML-based composition system that generates professionally composed PDFs for authors to download and review.
