Nova Techset - Katalyst Announces bioRxiv Data Conversion Services Partnership

Katalyst Technologies Inc.

Nova Techset, the publishing services division of Katalyst Technologies Inc., today announced details of its new data conversion services partnership with bioRxiv, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s preprint server. Nova Techset – Katalyst will deliver content to the bioRxiv server in full-text XML, which will be fully searchable by readers.

bioRxiv (pronounced ‘bio-archive’) is a free online archive and distribution service for unpublished preprints in the life sciences. It is operated by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, a not-for-profit research, and educational institution. By posting a preprint on bioRxiv, authors make their findings immediately available to the scientific community and may receive feedback on the manuscript before it is submitted to a journal.

Nova Techset-Katalyst has been chosen by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory to provide full-text XML conversion services for all bioRxiv manuscripts posted since the server’s launch. Full-text XML means that each article will be fully searchable, both within itself and throughout the entire archive. Nova Techset-Katalyst has worked for Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press for over ten years on its book and journal publishing program and was chosen by CSHL because of its track record of success.

The bioRxiv preprint server was initiated by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in November 2013 and received significant support in May 2017 from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. It currently hosts over 31,000 manuscripts from scientists in 108 countries and has a rapidly rising rate of submission.

“Helping researchers communicate at the speed of science has been the principal goal of bioRxiv since its launch,” said Dr. John Inglis, co-founder of bioRxiv at CSHL, “and over 180,000 authors have taken advantage of that opportunity.”

Vivek Nagarkatti, Nova Techset – Katalyst's CEO, India Operations says, “We are extremely proud to have been chosen by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory as its XML conversion supplier for this large, exciting and highly important new publishing initiative that we believe will be a major force in scientific research in the future.”
