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 XML Catalog

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

Transformation Scenarios

Oxygen XML Developer plugin 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.
