StATS: Publicon software (March 14, 2005)

Wolfram Research, makers of the famous software for symbolic mathematical calculations, Mathematica, have released a new product for technical publications, Publicon. According to their website,

Publicon provides an easy-to-use graphical interface for creating publication-quality technical documents that integrate text, searchable typeset equations, graphics, hyperlinks, endnotes, and references. Built-in palettes, templates, and style sheets simplify the creation of documents that conform to established formats but also allow for complete customization.

This software will produce nice looking output in html, xml, or LaTex. BioMed Central has announced that it will support the use of Publicon because it will offer faster and more accurate translation to their XML format. BioMed Central will also will offer authors a discount on the article processing charge if they use this product.
