XEditPro is an integrated/automated publishing suite; every major and minor work process involved in digital publishing is achieved within the system and eventually gives us the advantage in rapid multi-channel output, cost-effectiveness, and notable improvements in turnaround time.
It manages editorial and production processes for print and digital using a single system. It reduces copyediting intervention with an artificial intelligence capability. In XEditPro, "Natural Language Processor" NLP is embedded within the system. The processor helps distinguish between documents that will need either automated or manual copyediting. Using XeditPro in the pre-editing stage of the work process is time saving.
Automated Copyediting :
Default requirement of structuring a document with XML, cleaning, validation of references to bibliographic databases (e.g. Crossref, PubMed), Funder Registry, ORCID are performed at the pre-editing automated stage. This level is score checked using XeditPro NLP module. Based on the parameter XeditPro has assigned, the files are processed for automated copyediting.
Guided Copyediting :
NLP score check at this stage as again determined with a parameter, which will judge on files that need manual copyediting or automated copyediting. At this level, NLP auto edit happens, followed by XML conversion and then manual editing comes to play.
Manual Copyediting :
NLP score check, with its pre-defined intelligence, takes forward all files that need manual copyediting to the copyeditor. The copyeditor will read the text and correct inconsistent and incorrect grammar, spelling, capitalization, abbreviations etc. Copyeditors can raise queries on unclear text and factual inconsistencies, XeditPro again plays the role of a messenger, by default tracks changes are notified to the Author.
