The modern scholarly article is often the result of hundreds of hours of research. After this research, the scholar is often asked to play the role of a typesetter, since many journals have strict requirements for both presentation layout and digital format. Since these requirements differ between journals, submitting an article to another journal after a rejection adds further effort. Modern XSL-based technologies provide a practical means to remove the responsibility for formatting and typesetting articles from the researcher without encumbering the publisher. This approach allows a researcher to submit exactly the same document to different publishers even when the journals' presentation layouts differ dramatically. This paper discusses the advantages to scholar, publisher and archiver of having a standard XML-based format for journal article submissions. Specific details of implementation are demonstrated through the use of ScholarML, Scholar Markup Language, to write this article, and an XSLT stylesheet to convert it into its finished form.
