XML output

We provide XML output for both books and journals using BITS, JATS and NLM. In fact, we are members of the JATS4R group and take an active role in the development of JATS tagging and best practice recommendations.


If your publishing programme requires XML output then we can help. If you need a custom DTD, then we can help with that too. If the XML you need is complex, with lots of attributes and hidden structure, well, we already produce complex XML for other clients. And if you need XML transformed using XSL, e.g to create data feeds (see below), we have lots of relevant experience of doing exactly that.

Talk to us about what you want and why you want it; we may well have solved your XML problem already.


We can manage and distribute metadata for books and journal articles. We are experienced in registering content with Crossref (they tell us we supply some of the most comprehensive metadata of all their members) and managing DOIs.

We also have extensive experience of providing metadata for citation services such as PubMed. If you would like us to register DOIs or talk about making your metadata available, please speak to us.


It’s easy to create ePub novels, but ePubs for academic texts containing tables, figures, boxes and equations can pose problems. If you plan to publish academic material on a Kindle or iPad, or another eBook platform, we can offer advice and guidance on the most appropriate route to follow.

If you want to publish using iBooks Author, but don’t know how go about converting your content into a professional iBook, then we can help with that too. Just ask us.
