SANTA CLARA, CALIFORNIA—NISO, which develops and maintains the technical content standards that underlie the online publishing of scholarly research, named Bruce Rosenblum, Inera’s CEO, its first fellow in 20 years. Rosenblum came to Atypon with its acquisition of Inera last year.
Rosenblum, who has more than thirty-five years experience designing and implementing electronic publishing solutions, was honored for his long service and ongoing contributions to NISO and the scholarly communications community. The announcement was made at the NISO Plus Conference last month.
Rosenblum was instrumental in creating Crossref’s metadata deposit schema and coauthored the original NLM DTD, the XML content model that eventually became JATS, the standard for the online publication of scientific journals. The DTD was based on a study funded by the Mellon Foundation that he completed for the Harvard University Library in 2001.
“I’d like to congratulate Bruce on behalf of the entire Atypon family,” said Marty Picco, Atypon’s General Manager. “His dedication to the production of scholarly research for online audiences, work that goes largely unseen, helped usher in the transition of peer-reviewed research from print to digital, a transformation with benefits far beyond this industry.”
Rosenblum continues to work on the NISO JATS Standing Committee and co-chairs the NISO STS (Standards Tag Suite) Standing Committee which defined the content model for standards publications. He also serves on the BITS Working Group, which deals with the XML standard for scholarly books. He was a founding member of the JATS, BITS, and STS groups, and served on NISO’s board of directors from 2005 to 2013.
