Open Typesetting Stack

Last updated: 2021-01-27 12:33 UTC
Description: Open Typesetting Stack (OTS) is an article conversion/ingest service developed by the Public Knowledge Project to convert word-processor and PDF versions of articles into JATS XML for publication. OTS integrates a host of other parsing and conversion tools (including the machine-learning tool Grobid) and external services to provide the most accurate possible XML without additional user input. This service "and its OJS plugin integration" is intended to decrease the labour involved in production, and to facilitate the creation of archive-friendly and web-native article formats. OTS is in maintenance mode as of this writing.
