The following response was sent to the submitter on July 1, 2013. ================================================================= Dear Anand Patel, I'm sorry, but I am not aware of any tool that will convert PDF to PubMed XML without a good bit of customization. The real complication here is that the lack of uniformity in the way that articles can appear in PDFs that makes it difficult for a transform to understand which pieces become which elements in the target PubMed XML. In case you have not found this yet, details on creating and submitting PubMed XML are here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK3828/. And you can address specific questions to publisher@ncbi.nlm.nih.gov Thank you Jeff Beck JATS Standing Committee Co-chair
