The LPC’s Professional Development Committee coordinates a regular webinar series to provide opportunities to share knowledge, discuss on-the-ground experiences, and build on community expertise. Webinar recordings are made openly available here.


This talk is intended for editors, editorial assistants, journal managers, XML aficionados, developers, and anyone else who has an interest in document format conversion and parsing. We’ll be examining PKP’s current XML parsing kit, discussing the merits of automated vs. manual markup, and discussing how to accommodate an XML-based workflow with currently available tools. If you’re interested in producing National Library of Medicine JATS XML content from authors’ Word document submissions with a minimum of effort, and getting matching HTML/PDF/ePub output, you should be interested in this webinar!
