Abstract: The Journal Article Tag Suite (JATS) is a description of a set of elements and attributes that is used to build XML models of journal articles for archiving, publishing, and authoring. JATS became an American National Standard (ANSI/NISO Z39.96-2012) in August 2012, but it was already a wellestablished specification (known by the colloquial name “NLM DTD”) by the time work began on standardization in late 2009.
