XML Workflow Summary
As part of an ongoing project of the AAUP Design & Production Committee to research and outline a digital workflow that facilitates production of scholarly content in several delivery formats, Terri O'Prey (Princeton UP) has developed an XML Workflow Summary word document.
This is an outline of best practices for XML workflow based on the Princeton experience of transitioning to an XML-first workflow using the Scribe DTD and process. This outline gives a brief history and description of XML and its value as a flexible, stable, editable format to store and transport data. It offers specific tips in manuscript processing that, while described relative to Scribe's DTD, can be applied in other workflows.
