JATS Document Type (Framework)

The JATS (NISO Journal Article Tag Suite) document type is a technical standard that defines an XML format for scientific literature.

File Definition

A file is considered to be a JATS document when the PUBLIC ID of the document contains the string -//NLM//DTD.

Default Document Templates

There are some default JATS templates available when creating new documents from templates and they can be found in: Framework Templates > JATSKit - NISO JATS and NLM BITS

The default templates for JATS documents are located in the [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/frameworks/jats/templates/ folder.

Default Schema for Validation and Content Completion

Default schemas that are used if one is not detected in the JATS document are stored in [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/frameworks/jats/lib/schemas/.

Default CSS

The default CSS files used for rendering JATS content in Author mode are stored in [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/frameworks/jats/lib/author-css/.

By default, these default CSS files are merged with any that are specified in the document. For more information, see Configuring and Managing Multiple CSS Styles.

Default XML Catalog

The default XML Catalog, jatskit-catalog.xml, is stored in [OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR]/frameworks/jats/lib/schemas/.

Transformation Scenarios

Oxygen XML Author includes built-in transformation scenarios that allow you to transform JATS documents to a variety of outputs, such as PDF, HTML, and EPUB. They can be found in the JATSKit section in the Configure Transformation Scenario(s) dialog box.
