Welcome to JATS-Con Asia Conference
As publishing using XML is now widespread, the Journal Article Tag Suite (JATS), has become the international standard to code scholarly journal articles in the US and Europe, and increasingly in Asia, too.
JATS-Con meeting was first held in 2010 at the National Library of Medicine (NLM), where the predecessor of JATS, NLM DTD, was born. It has been held annually to discuss experiences and issues about JATS, and recently the Book Interchange Tag Suite (BITS). Please visit its website to learn more about JATS-Con.
As JATS enable us to tag non-European language texts in XML, we believe it is very timely and important now to discuss challenges and experiences in using XML and JATS among Asian countries. JATS-Con Asia is fully endorsed by JATS-Con in the US.
At JATS-Con Asia, we expect intensive discussion about how JATS is used to publish scholarly journal articles in XML, especially those in local languages such as Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
From NISO JATS Standing Committee, Mr. Bruce Rosenblum (Inera, Inc.) will present a paper. We expect speakers from Asian countries as well. Those who are interested in scholarly publishing, do come and attend this important meeting!
