Introduction

River Valley have a XML complaint production tracking system known as `RVMS' which means `River Valley Management System'. It can import XML coversheets and bookin a new job. It can render the coversheet. So we request XML coversheets from our clients.

What is XML coversheet?

XML coversheet means, coversheets in XML format which are accompanied with the manuscript for typesetting. Metadata is tagged using XML elements.

Advantages of XML coversheets

XML coversheet poses lot of advantages.

  1. All meta information are tagged properly.
  2. This can easily be generated from manuscript submission systems without any re-keying.
  3. This can be used for booking in an article in any XML compliant production tracking system.
  4. The tagged information can be extracted or re-used in subsequent stages of production.
  5. Since the original data is used, typos can be avoided which eliminates further checking of metadata while proof-reading.
  6. Using XSLT, these coversheets can be rendered in a browser.
