Abstract

Journal production was one of the first commercial arenas in which markup technologies took hold, and today most major (and many minor) journal publishers have journal content in SGML or XML data formats. However, over the past few years the introduction of XML and its many adjunctive technologies has reshaped the markup landscape. With many publishers having digital workflows that were established before the flowering of XML, and some publishers looking to move to digital workflows for the first time, this article attempts to tour those parts of the XML technology family, and those XML‐related activities, that are of most relevance to journal production.
