Title NISO Proposed Work Item: Standardized Markup for Journal Articles (VM ballot August 4, 2009)
Name NISO Proposed Work Item: Standardized Markup for Journal Articles (VM ballot August 4, 2009) (49K)
Description This new work item accompanied the NISO Voting Member ballot opened August 4, 2009.

The goal of this work item is to take the currently existing National Library of Medicine (NLM) Journal Archiving and Interchange Tag Suite version 3.0, the three journal article schemas, and the documentation and shepherd it through the NISO standardization process. The intent of this proposal is for the Tag Suite to be a NISO standard and each of the schemas to be a “sub-standard” or appendix to the Tag Suite standard. To achieve this objective, this proposal is to convene a NISO Working Group with the intention of proposing that the Tag Suite, as it currently stands, be accepted as a Draft Standard following a brief period of review within the group.

The proposal was approved by the Content & Collection Management Topic Committee on July 29, 2009, and is now being sent to the NISO voting membership for agreement to begin a new work project and to elicit expressions of interest in participating in the work.
