Dear NISO community,

NISO's next monthly open teleconference will be TODAY-- Tuesday, October 22nd
at 3:00 PM Eastern time. The call is open to everyone! Our topic for this
month's Open Teleconference will be JATS4R (JATS for Reuse), an initiative
that became a NISO working group last year.

The call on Tuesday is free and anyone is welcome to participate. To join,
simply dial US: +1 646 558 8656 or +1 669 900 6833 and enter the code: 155 493
528#. All calls are held from 3-4 p.m. Eastern time. (International numbers
are also available:

JATS4R creates recommendations for tagging particular types of content in JATS
XML, which optimizes its reusability.  Joining us on the call will be members
of the JATS4R Steering Committee, Melissa Harrison of eLife, Kevin Lawson of
Sheridan Journal Services, Stephen Laverick of Green Fifteen Publishing
Consultancy, and Nick Nunes of HighWire.

JATS4R's work is predicated on the belief that it is critical for publishers,
aggregators, indexers, scholarly web platforms, and digital repositories to
agree to use a standard set of XML tags and their definitions and to apply
these tags as consistently as possible to the same parts of article content.
This adoption of JATS4R recommendations helps scholarly content creators make
XML that improves everyonebs experience with--and discovery of--journal
article content. JATS4R subgroups operate in a lean, agile manner, putting out
recommendations on tagging particular discrete article objects in JATS XML at
a relatively fast pace.

There will be time for questions and discussion, too. We hope you will be able
to join us!

In general: The Open Teleconferences are a quick way to get an update on the
status of a NISO initiative. The calls are informal and questions and
discussion is welcome. Following the featured discussion, there is also an
opportunity for the NISO community to bring up any issue or topic of interest.
This is an excellent time for you to raise any concerns, project ideas, or
suggestions of focus for NISO in the coming year.

If you are unable to join us, this call will be recorded and made freely
available on the NISO website following the event-as are all of the Open
Teleconferences.  For more information or to listen to 2019 call discussions,
