The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has announced the publication of a new American National Standard, JATS: Journal Article Tag Suite, ANSI/NISO Z39.96-2012.

This interesting news was found on the NISO website in their press release titled, “NISO Publishes Journal Article Tag Suite (JATS) Standard.” JATS provides a common XML format in which publishers and archives can exchange journal content by preserving the intellectual content of journals independent of the form in which that content was originally delivered. Three journal article tag sets (the Archiving and Interchange Tag Set, the Journal Publishing Tag Set, and the Article Authoring Tag Set) are part of the standard.

Access Innovations has recently adopted this particular document type definition (DTD) for all their main projects. To provide quality taxonomy development services, it has never been more important to approach knowledge organization based on accepted and shared standards. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies that can help you generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
