Meet SkyLaTeX – the web-based LaTeX editing and compiling tool used in production for online proofing. Conveniently suited for STM fields, SkyLaTeX actively involves authors in the publication preparation by allowing them to edit and compile production LaTeX files and check proofs remotely, thus boosting the speed of processing for heavy mathematical content. With SkyLaTeX, it’s easier to check and validate authors’ changes, which leads to a higher quality of typesetting, improved turnaround time, and increased author satisfaction. More than 60,000 authors have already used the SkyLaTeX – 99% of them were delighted and have rated SkyLaTeX as an indispensable tool in the process of production. Work, communicate, and collect all your feedback from authors in one collaborative space – SkyLaTeX!
It worked wonderfully. Changes are quick, easy, and immediate. I found myself encouraged to be more complete and precise in the text this way than I used to be when commenting on the PDF.
There is no possibility of misinterpretation of corrections.
I liked to see the final PDF after my final corrections.
This is the best system I have seen for page-proofs by far.
Designed to make the academic journal and book proofing process faster and more efficient, SkyLaTeX serves both experienced and new LaTeX users. SkyLaTeX allows authors to insert corrections directly into the production LaTeX file, preview the corrected PDF after compilation, and to view the editor’s queries and answer them. The workflow is as follows:
SkyLaTeX is convenient because of its suitability for both experienced and novice LaTeX authors. During the proofing process, efficient communication between the author and Editor is vital and often takes time. Effective built-in editing and commenting features in the SkyLaTeX tool shortens the proofing process and saves the authors’ and editors’ time.
Designed for heavy mathematical content, SkyLaTeX is beneficial to all the publishers who want to improve language editing processes. With Rich Text functionality, the SkyLaTeX tool conveniently allows editing heavy math content in Rich Text mode by hiding LaTeX commands and code for math content. It is a handy way to equip LaTeX with the “what you see is what you get” output and without a doubt facilitates the technical editing process.
We offer a new way to use SkyLaTeX, where authors can prepare a new book edition in the LaTeX environment by themselves in three simple steps:
Thus, the author benefits from SkyLaTeX by actually working with the final LaTeX files of the most recent edition of the book, shortening turnaround time and increasing the quality of the final product. Full-text XML of the new edition can be prepared as an additional service.
Our vision is to be among leading service providers in STM publishing fields with the highest service quality assurance. Social responsibility is the foundation of the VTeX management philosophy.
