XML Publishing Roadmap

The PKP, in conjunction with RIT, University of Monash, and UNB ETC, 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.


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


September 2008:

  • Examine and understand XSL files sent by U of Monash (James)
  • Determine applicability of ePub format for HTML/PDF galleys (MJ)

October 2008:

  • Compile list of various PHP-based tools for PDF rendering from XML (eg. phpfop (MJ)
  • Extend the current xmlGalleys plugin (which already supports NLM) to support Docbook and TEI based on Monash/UNB XSL (James with help from MJ and possibly Jason Nugent)

September-December 2008

  • Establish, in writing, a reasonable XML rendering workflow. 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 and UNB)
