Journal Production

Digital Content Development


The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) is an international community of biologists dedicated to advancing scientific discovery. For more than six years, Aptara has supplied ASCB with end-to-end digital journal production services and uploading publish-ready content to Stanford University’s HighWire journal-hosting platform. Using InDesign, Aptara’s own XMLPublish software, automated DTD validation, and Mathtype with LaTeX support to render complex mathematical text, Aptara has streamlined workflows for this continuous publishing model project. Aptara’s QA services include ensuring that HighWire’s requirements are always met; custom scripts then automate the upload to HighWire.
