Hi Matteo,

there is a comprehensive list of tools in the JATS wiki:

Since most authors work in MS Word or LaTeX, I would stick to a solution where you convert JATS from these source formats as they allow you to use Math or complex tables and lists. For this purpose, we have several transpect components. They are Open Source but require additional customization and knowledge of XSLT and XProc.

Markdown and Pandoc would be convenient if you have dead simple content.

If you want to convert JATS from LaTeX, you could give LaTeXML a chance.

Kind regards,

Dear all,

I was wandering, if I am an author and I would like to write my
article in JATS XML, what tool would you suggest me to use?

Is there any editor / module / service / something that I can use?

[even more OT]
I personally like LaTeX a lot and tried to use tex4ht, but I was not
able to write a workig configuration for JATS. Does anyone know of
some such configuration?
