Title NISO Z39.96-201x, JATS: Journal Article Tag Suite
Description You are receiving this ballot because you elected to join this Voting Pool. All organizations in this voting pool are required to vote; one vote is allowed per organization.

This voting pool is to approve the publication of the standard NISO Z39.96-201x, JATS: Journal Article Tag Suite, 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 articlesóincluding research and non-research articles, letters, editorials, book and product reviewsówith the intent of providing a common format in which publishers and archives can exchange journal content. This standard is a revision of version 3.0 of the National Library of Medicine Archiving and Interchange Tag Suite, commonly referred to as the NLM DTDs.

The proposed standard is available in both PDF and HTML format from a link on the ballot webpage and in the announcement e-mail. (The HTML link is marked as 1.0, the version number that will be assigned to the NISO standard for JATS.) Note that this is a very long standard, largely made up of element definitions. You may find the HTML version easier to review.

Your voting options are:
Yes -- approve for publication as an American National Standard
No -- do not approve for publication
Abstain from voting

Comments are required for No and Abstain votes.

If this standard is approved by the NISO Voting Pool, it will require final approval from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) before its final publication.
