Voted YES on NISO Z39.96-202x, JATS: Journal Article Tag Suite (1.3)


Do you approve this revised standard (NISO Z39.96, JATS 1.3) for publication as an American National Standard?


The purpose of the NISO Journal Article Tag Suite (NISO JATS) standard is to define a suite of XML elements and attributes that describes the content and metadata of journal articles—including research and non-research articles, letters, editorials, book and product reviews—with the intent of providing a common format in which publishers and archives can exchange journal content. This standard is a revision of JATS 1.2 published in 2019, and includes input determined by the NISO JATS Standing Committee pursuant to its ANSI-approved Continuous Maintenance process.
