Standardising Standards

Publishing with STS, eXtyles & Typefi

Webinar series: Standardising Standards

In October 2017, the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) announced the publication of the STS (Standards Tag Suite), an XML tag suite for the publication of standards.

STS builds upon JATS (Journal Article Tag Suite)—the existing, widely used standard for journal publishers—and a variant of JATS, ISOSTS, the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) version of STS created in 2011.

To celebrate the release of the new standard, Typefi and Inera will host a weekly webinar series on how you can best leverage STS. The eight 30-minute recordings will include:

  • Everything you need to know about the new publishing standard;
  • The advantages you will gain from using STS, Inera eXtyles and Typefi to transform your publishing processes;
  • Real-world case studies of how standards publishers have benefited from implementing XML-based publishing workflows (including ISOSTS) in the past;
  • And more!

Don’t want to wait for the series? Contact us now to find out how you can publish your standards more effectively with STS, eXtyles and Typefi!

Eric Damitz

Eric Damitz

Senior Solutions Consultant, Typefi

As a Senior Solutions Consultant, Eric works with customers to determine the best way to use Typefi for their particular needs, and then implements their solution. He started in publishing over 20 years ago as a TeX typesetter at a small development house, where he learned such valuable skills as opaquing film, making Dylux proofs, and pasting up forms with hot wax. He also learned desktop publishing, which was somewhat more useful. He moved to a large educational publishing company and spent 17 years as a production manager working with his colleagues to re-invent how publishing works—several times.

Eric’s particular skillset focuses on publishing automation, workflow improvement, and single-source publishing for both digital and print. He has a degree in Rhetoric (writing, not arguing) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Senior Solutions Consultant, Typefi

Guy first got hooked on publishing while attending an international school in Ivory Coast, where he used Pagemaker, Photoshop and an Apple Quicktake 100 camera to help create the yearbook. After many hours of hard work, while holding the final printed product, he knew this was an industry he wanted to be a part of.

Having spent the first 17 years of his life in West Africa, Guy is fluent in three languages and has a multicultural background that has served him well in his career.
