Data Conversion Laboratory Announces New NLM XML and PubMed Support Offerings

Fresh Meadows, NY – September 1, 2009: Data Conversion Laboratory, Inc. (DCL), providing conversion services and software to publishers, industry, government, libraries and documentation developers, has introduced new product and service offerings to support publishers depositing materials in PubMed Central or who convert materials to NLM XML for their own publication purposes. Developed by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), NLM XML is fast becoming the de facto XML standard for scientific journals.

DCLcomposer: This XSLT software enables automated two-column PDF renderings of manuscripts and journal articles, with in-line images and tables, from NLM XML. Publishers delivering articles and offprints in lieu of full journals often can utilize DCL Composer to produce composed articles directly from the XML tagging, thereby eliminating the need to do composition prior to XML conversion.

DCLcomposer Service: Supplementing DCL's conversion service for author manuscripts and journal articles, DCLcomposer Service renders NLM XML files, providing publishers wishing to limit software investment with publish-ready PDF files.

LinkOut Support: This add-on to DCL's conversion service enables publishers to link their PubMed-deposited materials back to their own websites, resulting in increased web traffic.

NLM XML Training: DCL can provide training - either on-site or via webinars - to organizations desiring to produce NLM XML in-house or to perform QA on NLM XML files.

Mark Gross, DCL President and CEO, explained: "Having converted more than 50,000 papers to the NLM DTD, and adding 3,000 new articles each month, we are committed to continually enhancing our client services. These new offerings will provide additional support for publishers from twelve countries in the conversion of their journals for deposit into the PubMed Central Database."
