Every scientific work requires bibliographical references to prove that an author relied on relevant sources. As every journal has its own strict guidelines, the editing of bibliography is often complex and time-consuming. It is evaluated that the correction of the bibliography list takes about 4 times longer than the rest of the article. This is where VTEX serves publishing houses — we offer effective software and workflow for preparation of bibliography, that fully complies with the requirements of the publisher. Our tool facilitates both sides — authors to prepare bibliography faster and editors to correct it easier. Use our long-term experience and innovative decisions to mae publishing processes faster & easier.
Since every journal has its own guidelines, the bibliography preparation and correction can be time-consuming for authors. Our tool complies with bibliography requirements of each journal guidelines and thus saves plenty of author’s time. Accelerate the production process with VTeX!
A real fact: it takes about 4 times longer to check the bibliography list than the rest of the article. Our tool saves the publisher’s staff time and energy in two ways:
If the author has initially used the tool, the publisher’s staff will not need to make corrections in the bibliography.
If the author did not use the tool, then editors from the publishing house can use the tool and immediately see where the errors occur in the bibliography.
A perfectly formatted list of bibliography not only increases the credibility and quality of an article, but it also enables the correct cross-referencing between published articles, so increasing their citation indices and visibility.
VTeX configures the tool according to the publisher’s bibliography requirements. The tool finds bibliography records from the uploaded LaTeX file, searches web databases for most respective correct versions of records, and puts the bibliography in the publisher’s style.
The search results then can be presented in different ways:
As an output, together with the modified LaTeX file, a separate file with its bibliography in BibTeX format can be exported. Missing or incorrect fields are indicated in the special note fields within BibTeX records. Authors may use these BibTeX files with correct records in preparing their subsequent LaTeX manuscripts.
It is important to note, that the service can be incorporated in the workflow before the submission of a LaTeX manuscript or in some later step, but before the author reads and corrects the proofs. Service/software can also be used by the publisher’s staff who check the bibliography at the journal’s production stage.
Note: The tool only works for articles written in LaTeX and in English.
At VTeX, the core value of management philosophy is social responsibility. Our vision is to become leading service providers in STM publishing fields with the highest service quality assurance.
