Manuscript Exchange Common Approach (MECA)

Open Teleconference

MECA is a new NISO project to develop a common means to easily transfer manuscripts between and among manuscript systems, such as those in use at publishers and preprint servers. Those who work in manuscript-processing areas such as production systems, preprint servers, and authoring services are engaging in community development of a NISO Recommended Practice intended to alleviate pain points encountered by researchers as well as service providers operating in the scholarly ecosystem.

MECA Working Group co-chair Tony Alves will describe the pre-NISO work and how the new NISO working group is tackling the next tasks on the way to publication.
