Do they have an ETA on getting these hooks in place?
This sounds promising. BUT it also sounds like those hooks into the submission system are not, right now, present. More, I've been thinking about this and am not sure how OJS would know which journal a SWORD transmission is being submitted TO, or, for that matter, who is actually doing the submitting, i.e., so if a packet is submitted via SWORD and OJS opens it up, it would then have to somehow know which internal author ID and journal ID to map the submission to up front, so this would entail the external Submitter knowing these things to being with, which he naturally wouldn't. This isn't a problem with SWORD per se, it's a problem with blindly submitting into a system that would normally demand one do all sorts of things (set up a User account, pick which journal to submit to, etc.) via their Web interface.
Pablo Fernicola gave a presentation describing work on an authoring add-in for Microsoft Word on the Windows platform. The add-in, currently in beta, will support ORE, SWORD, and the Publishing tagset of the NLM DTD. We have been working with Pablo on the ORE components of the add-in. This technology will allow an author to create a document, link it with data and rich media, describe the relationships of this components, and submit the package to a repository -- all without leaving Microsoft Word. While other approaches will be needed for other authoring environments (e.g., LaTeX), these tools go a long way to lowering the barriers to contributing and reusing content.
