The EMSL Publisher (Lite) - Demonstration version now available
The EMSL Publisher (c) 1997-1998 is a new software product developed to
the process of writing scientific reports and journal articles. This
processing application is written entirely using the Java1.1 language,
such will run on all supporting platforms (currently including Win95,
WinNT, MacOS, and many UNIX flavors).
In addition to offering the user the standard word processing features,
software also offers :
* Embeddable Java Applets and JavaBeans
This allows any Java code to be embedded within the document,
such as molecular editors, graphs, charts, equations etc... The
demonstration version includes an example 3D Molecular Viewer,
allows 'live' 3D models to be placed into the document.
* Distributed Document Server
The user has the option to save and load his document to and from
the local disk or to a remote document server. This enables
authors to jointly write papers even if they are physically
form each other and/or using different platforms.
* Citations Database
Built into the full release version of the software is a complete
citations database, allowing references to be placed within
and then automatically formatted and numbered as required.
* Automatic Journal Styling
Papers can be written and then automatically styled for the
journal. i.e., style for an JACS submission, and then with one
re-style the whole document (references includes) for a J. Chem.
* Platform Independence
The Publisher itself will run on any Java1.1 enabled machine. In
addition, its documents are fully portable.
* Chemical Formulae Styling
Type in a chemical formula in plain text, have the software
superscript or subscript the numbers, and place 'proper' arrows
We have just released a demonstration version of the Publisher Lite,
showcasing the basic features of the software, and are anticipating a
featured release during the forthcoming summer.
