London, UK, 15 September, 2014 – River Valley Technologies, the leading providers of LaTeX and XML-first typesetting are turning the industry on its head by launching a completely automated XML-based publishing system, RVPublisher.
The system is made up of several standalone “modules” that interconnect seamlessly. These include RVRite (River Valley’s online XML authoring platform), ReView (an intuitive peer review system), RVEdit (River Valley’s copyediting platform), ProofCheck (an XML proof correction platform), VeRify (a user friendly XML checking system) and RVFormatter (a fully automated platform to convert XML to PDF or any other format).
The system will allow authors to create and submit valid XML files, using the RVRite online authoring platform. The publisher is then able to select the modules they wish the paper to go through, e.g. peer review or copyediting. Finally RVFormatter, River Valley’s automated XML converter will generate any required formats (e.g. PDF or Epub) at the press of a button.
River Valley Technologies’ Director, Kaveh Bazargan said: “We want to minimize the time to publication, and at the same time make it a pleasure for authors and publishers to guide manuscripts through the publication process.”
RVPublisher radically reduces the time to publication and will also allow Microsoft Word files to be published within 24 hours of acceptance. Later in 2015, the system will also deliver automated publishing for Word files.
