EditGenieTM (CorrectOnline) is Nova Techset’s flagship web-based XML editor that presents a Word-like display and helps authors to incorporate corrections directly into the XML. This is enabled through an intuitive graphical user interface where the author can see all the corrections in real time and also generate a PDF instantly to visualize the typeset proof.
This is a customized tool, and also has an additional unique feature that enables the changes made by the author to be accepted or rejected at a subsequent stage. This is hosted on a cloud environment and accelerates the author correction cycle significantly, leading to faster turnaround times and increased speed of publication.
One significant feature of editGenie is that it fully supports MathML and LaTeX mathematical equation editing. Tables can be inserted, and columns and rows can be added.
The other important feature is that all formulae can be edited by the author, adding a new dimension to the tool’s flexibility.
CasperTM is an interactive, browser-based, fully automated, end-to-end copyediting system that cleans up raw manuscript content, applies book and journal styles, structures references and front matter, moves floats to the end of the document and interacts directly with online PubMed and cross-reference sites.
Once the cleanup is done, it automatically converts the content to XML and carries out the style and usage corrections, validates references and highlights differences.
CasperTM has more than 1,000 built-in rules and is fully customizable to publisher-specific needs. It suggests alternative scientific phrases for copyeditors to consider, and has support tools to offer grammar improvements, highlight mis-capitalised words, repeated words, US/UK spelling, hyphenation and abbreviated words.
The copyeditor can generate the galley proof pdf on the fly within a few minutes after completing all changes.
