Typesetr at the Frankfurt Book Fair

LShift and its partners from the Leuphana Inkubator (University of Hamburg) presented Typesetr(™) to a packed session at this year’s Frankfurt Bookfair during the “The Future of Higher Education and Academic Publishing” seminar.

Typesetr had just undergone a complete UI refresh and integration with the Zotero citation and bibliography service before the show and so attracted a great deal of interest. Typesetr is going to be used as the semantic editing and document transform platform for the EU’s principal research initiative for Open Access publishing infrastructure over the next three years.

The academic version of Typesetr shown to conference delegates enables students, researchers and academic departments to collaboratively create, edit, transform and enrich complex documents whether they be intended for book, journal, monograph or digital distribution formats. An intermediate representation of a highly structured document is maintained such that switching between different output targets doesn’t affect the original’s structure or metadata or compromise the design and specification of the desired output format.

Along with Zotero integration, support for some of the world’s leading Open Access academic publishers is next up for Typesetr’s development road map. If you’d like more information, or to join the Typesetr closed beta program then contact us
