Ovid Journal Reader supports JATS format and functions – May 2021

 

Ovid Journal Reader supports JATS format and functions

Dear Ovid Customer:

Supporting our goal of continuous improvement, in our next release planned for Thursday 3 June 2021 at 10am EDT (view your local time), we will implement Journal Article Tag Suite (JATS) format support in our new journal reader and begin loading Lippincott content supplied to us in this format first, followed by other publishers in this and similar modern formats in the future. We do not expect this release to impact your access.

Articles published in this format allow a seamless reading experience, access to more new content, and improved usability of article content within Ovid:

  • For all articles supporting the JATS format, the new journal reader will now support inline videos.
  • Article elements such as tables and formulas will now appear as text within the article, improving readability and access to the article content.
  • Published Ahead of Print (PAP) articles will be available as text in addition to the PDF view previously available.

Note: Users will automatically be directed to the new reading experience (https://oce.ovid.com) when they use a link from a discovery service, link resolver, or a direct article Jumpstart link like those in eTOC alerts from Ovid. When users search on the Ovid platform (https://ovidsp.ovid.com) and they click on an internal PDF or full text link for Ovid, they will see the traditional article view.

We look forward to continuing to improve the Ovid user experience and to providing customers with outstanding service. Feel free to contact Customer Support with any questions by sending an email to [email protected].

Regards,

Wolters Kluwer – Ovid
