The NLM Journal Archiving and Interchange Tag Suite

The NLM Journal Archiving and Interchange Tag Suite (also called the NLM DTD although it is available in DTD, XSD, and RNG forms) provides a common XML format for preserving the intellectual content of journal articles, independent of the form in which that content was originally delivered. The Tag Suite consists of Tag Sets for Archiving, Publishing, and Authoring journal article content and a Tag Set for Books and book material. The Tag Sets have been widely adopted by archives, libraries, and publishers and are supported by many data conversion vendors and XML tools.

Since 2003, Mulberry has been working with the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a center of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), to create and maintain the NLM Journal Archiving and Interchange Tag Suite. In support of the NCBI Tag Suite group, we at Mulberry have written and maintained the Tag Suite code including the DTDs, XSDs, and RNGs, and much of the Tag Suite documentation, in particular, all of the Tag Set Tag Libraries.

Mulberry provides consulting and support services to users of the Tag Sets, including publishers, archives, and content repackagers. We have:
