XML or Extensible Markup Language is a formatting language that you need to use for your Open-Access Journal. It was treated as a basic hypertext language, which was mostly used in web development and designing, but XML is a simple form of SGML (standard generalized markup language).
For writing your journal articles in XML format, you need to make a “Tree”, which is quite difficult for a non-technical person. If you have an open-access journal or you have a plan to launch a new one in future, then you must appoint an XML developer.
Without knowing XML, you cannot supply or upload your article metadata to the large indexing services like, DOAJ, SCILIT and JGate. Few of them have web-base schema, but you it will take 2-3 hours to upload an issue.
So either you have to learn XML which is quite time consuming and you have to invest 6-10 months to complete a course. Else, you can hire a developer for the same and pay a huge salary every month.
You can avoid such hassles by hiring Penprints. We have end-to-end journal hosting service or JMS, where you can find such XML services at free of cost. You do not need to avail our complete package then we can write your XML for your respective articles. It will cost you very less.
So start indexing your journal in international database. Do not worry, we are here to guide you with all possible ways.
