XML Publishing Roadmap

The PKP, in conjunction with RIT and University of Monash, will be extending our publishing support to include XML workflows. The goal is to have our software ingest XML (primarily NLM and Docbook DTDs/schema, with TEI and Erudit to follow) and render/display HTML and PDF.

Goals

  • Support Science (NLM) and SSH (Docbook, TEI) publishing formats
  • Produce both HTML and PDF rendering
  • Integrate, where appropriate, with: L8X (preview), OJS, and OMP

Roadmap

(Please note, these are rough dates only)

Sept. 1:

  • Examine and understand XSL files sent by U of Monash (MJ and James)
  • Examine and understand OPL's ePub library (MJ and James)
  • Determine applicability of ePub format for HTML/PDF galleys (MJ and James)
  • Compile list of various PHP-based tools for PDF rendering from XML (eg. phpfop (MJ)
  • Finalize roadmap

September-December 2008

  • Establish, in writing, a reasonable workflow using ePub. This may include a working demo as well, as we expect development and testing to proceed along with the discussion. (MJ and James in conjunction with RIT)
  • Extend the current xmlGalleys plugin (which already supports NLM) to support Docbook and TEI; optionally also factor in Erudit support. The goal will be to use the XSL files received from Monash and UNB for as much as possible. (James with help from MJ and possibly Jason Nugent)
