mPach: Integrated Publishing and Archiving of Journals in HathiTrust

Impromptu JATS User Group Meeting
October 22, 2013

Abstract

mPach is a package of tools being developed to provide a modular platform to enable the publication of born-digital open-access journals in HathiTrust, a digital library created by a partnership of major research institutions. One of the chief technological challenges in creating such a toolkit is enabling the conversion of edited manuscripts to JATS, which was chosen as the preservation-quality format. This paper provides a technical overview of the mPach platform, with special attention paid to the design and functionality of Norm, a tool being developed to convert Microsoft Word documents to JATS.
