Get articles in all the formats you need fast
Scholastica's production service uses advanced software to generate PDF, HTML, and full-text XML articles simultaneously from original DOCX or LaTeX manuscripts and accompanying files with no pre-formatting steps on your part. So you get the benefits of a single-source code-based production process without having to convert files to XML or work in a special text editing tool.

Save time during proofing and eliminate room for error
Since we use a software-based process to generate PDF, HTML, and full-text XML article files from a single source, they're always in sync. Any updates made during proofing are reflected across all file types automatically. That means authors and editors only have to review one article proof without worrying about version control steps.

Flexible production to fit your publishing needs

No contracts

With Scholastica, you stay in control. Start and stop using our production service at any time based on your needs, not a contract.

No article minimums

Whether you need to typeset 500 articles or 5, we have you covered with no minimum requirements. Just submit requests as needed.

Easy file exports

Need to send typeset articles to another platform or index? No problem! We make exporting files easy, including Silverchair-compatible XML.

Improve your reading experience
Scholastica produces articles to meet the needs of modern readers. We offer sleek, uncluttered single- and two-column PDF layouts optimized for online browsing. And since we use a software-based process to format figures, tables, and equations, they're always consistent and perfectly fit to PDF pages. When hosted via Scholastica's open access publishing platform, our HTML articles are also mobile-friendly, with the option to embed dynamic videos, graphs, and tables in the text.

Expand article indexing and discoverability
Scholastica optimizes the full-text XML article files we produce for indexing and discovery with rich machine-readable metadata for references, funding details, CRediT roles (when input), persistent identifiers (PIDs) like DOIs, ORCID, and ROR IDs, and more. Our full-text XML is formatted in the JATS standard, ready for ingestion in academic archives and indexes, including the DOAJ, PubMed Central, and PubMed search.

We handle the entire production process — so you have more time for everything else

Our US-based team handles all production steps from the time we get your copyedited manuscripts, with a 1-week turnaround time from each typesetting request through initial proof review. And we can easily integrate with your in-house copyediting workflow or an external service provider (we even have copyediting partners we can recommend!).

Bridge publishing process gaps to speed up time to publication
You can speed up your time to publication when you use Scholastica's peer review, production and/or open access publishing solutions together. Journals using our peer review system can import accepted manuscripts and metadata straight to our production service. And open access journals using our hosting platform can publish articles as they're ready in a few clicks.
