Abstract

Today a major part of scientific publishing means distribution of articles through journals both in print and online. Articles are still the predominant publishing format, even in the web-based publishing era. In this paper we present an integrated journal management and publishing workflow based on the DSpace repository software. It is meant to suggest an approach which simplifies the authoring and submission process, including automated metadata extraction directly from the author's document. Delivering content in flexible ways helps to improve reading experience and enables better handling of archived scholarly material. Therefore, the system offers the publishing of repository content in different output formats, namely XHTML and PDF with the help of XSL stylesheets. Furthermore, it should make the set up and maintenance of journal issues easier. The new journal workflow allows flexible packaging of repository content and even automated production of print editions of journal issues.
