Heidelberg Monograph Publication Tool (heiMPT) is a stand-alone platform, as well as a plug-in application for OMP, developed by staff of Heidelberg University Library in cooperation with external partners, with fundings of German Research Foundation (DFG). It enables a high degree of automation in the digital publication process. The platform consists of 4 modules: (1) typesetting (meTypeset), (2) xml-processor, (3) an output generation engine and (4) a WYSIWYG editor.
(1) To covert from a Microsoft Word .docx format to NLM/JATS-XML for scholarly/scientific article typesetting, we utilize meTypeset, which we developed in collaboration with Dr. Martin Eve and the Public Knowledge Project (PKP). meTypeset is an extension/wrapper of OxGarage and uses TEI as an intermediary format to facilitate interchange. meTypeset allows for intelligent size processing of input documents and section grouping algorithms. It automatically detects figure and table lists, footnotes, heading structure, bibliographies, and metadata.
(2) A Set of utilities to process the XML files and functions to manipulate the content. Some of the functions are numbering, sorting references, deleting unreferenced references etc.
(3) XML documents are converted to desired output formats that can then be offered to users, including HTML, PDF, and ePub.
