so before I begin I would like to 1st thank a few people 1st of all our friends at the National Library of Medicine and in particular the team at NCBI for all of the work but the terrific work that they have done in developing services for the community as well as technical standards for the community and the information distribution they approach the problems of sharing and distribution from unique perspective as a national library and having to gather ingest information from a variety of
sources like few others there are in a position to see and understand the very messiness of rock publishes data and we can all appreciate the work that they are trying to do and have done over the past more than decade in developing structures and systems like jets to accomplish that activity I'd also like to call out in particular the contributions of 3 people the 1st is just for his but tireless work in leading the Jets Working Group his involvement in the development of the NLM DTD for many years his continued leadership as the head of the maintenance crew were culture that ministers as well as his organization of a series of jets comes meanings which have been a tremendous success I often say that post standardization efforts are the the real key to the whether or not a standard will become a successful and or In this respect Jeff and the team involved in the Jets community has been has done a terrific job in that respect in gathering and maintaining the energy in order to advance chats and outside of the core
constituency that have participated in the 2 people who I'd also like to call out for their contributions since the very beginning days of jets those 2 people a operas Rosenbloom and time used both the members of the working group both were present at the creation both have the use honor of serving on the message board Bruce having served I believe it was 9
years on my support of directors and 2 terms as Treasury and Tommy used by joined the join the board about 2 years ago so many thanks to both of them how many of you are familiar with nice so this was excellent I love this I love it when I walk into a room and everyone raises their hand therefore I can skip the next several pages so was flying back from the Middle East this weekend and I spent a few of the 13 hours on the plane watching of the recent Steve Jobs moving and I sometimes wish that nice so created actual physical technology so that I could stand up in front of a
room of people and safe in and Steve Jobs kind of way that this thing will blow your mind is the most amazing thing you've ever seen unfortunately I know Steve Jobs I and the things that we developed are less sexy with very however I would say that they're equally as impressive as being able to
store a thousand songs in your pocket
few people think of the infrastructure elements necessary to distribute information the work that it takes to digitize and distribute content using structures like objects that we have collectively created in an environment where much of the world's scholarly literature is online it's discoverable it's retrievable and accessible from nearly anywhere as well as preservable for future generations 2 at its heart the journal article article text we is more than a sense of a system of of production tools
it's a way of meaningfully communicated Digital structures the vocabulary for
building digital content we need to reflect the about where it is we're going with the distribution of digital content and how things and structures like Jackson to extend in an increasingly digital world is more and more of our world is going to be mediated by machines and more of the content that we access the world's literature the it scientific scholarly or even creative is going to be mediated through electronic displays a devices of some kind what will we require in terms of technologies and vocabularies to make that happen what sort of structures and exchange mechanisms are we going to need as we move into more advanced types of distributions such as data the work that was begun by Enel and more than
a decade ago was seen widespread adoption and application not just within its core community of medicine but also in a wide range of applications the last month was a great deal of who blog about the 25th anniversary of Tim Berners-Lee paper that describes the implementation of the World Wide Web it's important to reflect on this many accomplishments that have taken place in the time since that paper was released but if we reflect on the many decades that it took from the creation of Gutenberg's press to the invention of things like page numbers I posit that we're at the beginning of this process and we're just beginning to deal with the myriad of issues related to digital distribution and new forms of scholarly communication so what are the implications the system's needs in the publishing systems that need to be developed when we're in distributing not only text but other forms of digital objects such as audio video molecular structure models how to the publication distribution preservation systems need to adapt for things like Data visualization tools and software even geo-located visual virtual reality experiences what models to publishers and discovery services providers libraries and preservation services need to provide to develop the interoperability necessary to but in advance that ecosystem so very pleased that you all are engaged in this conversation I realized that the ability of any volunteer community is really tied essentially to the volunteer and the energy of the volunteers to participate and in
that respect reflect positively on the fact that when this meeting was canceled in October more than 100 of you showed up I don't know of many communities who in the case of the meeting being canceled would say hello will get together anyway the so I know few and so with that in terms of an organization that organizers volunteer efforts I turned to the Jack community for leadership as we explore some of these more complicated issues about supplemental materials about advancing a variety of does digital distribution for so I salute you in your contributions to this collective effort and I look forward to a fantastic meanings and many thanks to all of you for participating in making the Jets project a success thank you

Abstract Since its earliest days, the publishing structures that became the Journal Article Tag Suite (JATS) standards have proven themselves valuable as a method for exchanging journal content. Designed by a team with decades of typesetting and markup expertise, the specifications were quickly adopted by preservation communities and as a basis for many of the largest publishers production processes. As digital publishing evolves, the importance of common vocabulary structures like JATS will only increase, because exchanging digital files is a critical component in a functioning digital content ecosystem. NISO plays a critical role in bringing together content creators, intermediaries, and consumers to develop interoperability standards for the creation, discovery, distribution and preservation of content. With the support and engagement of the National Library of Medicine, NISO has engaged a broader community of participants to the standardization of JATS and it continues to support its ongoing development and expansion of the standard. During this brief talk, Todd will discuss the value of national standardization of JATS, and the future of interoperable content standards in digital publishing.
