Lodel in a nutshell…

Lodel is a web publishing system, configurable for specific needs. Lodel is installed on a (PHP) web server like many CMS, and used remotely with a web browser. It enables to collaborative and remote work (office, home, with distant teams).

Documents to be published may be prepared locally with a word-processor (MS Word, OpenOffice) or directly edited online. Lodel converts automatically Word or OpenOffice documents to XML/TEI by means of models. Lodel is particularly respectful of scientific edition conventions, such as footnotes, the structure of the text, the different character sets corresponding to non-latin languages, diacritical signs, small capitals, hard spaces.

According to appropriation principles, the software enables the editorial staff to upload the journal by himself, without having to be a computer specialist.

Lodel is compliant with the web standards (Dublin Core, RSS, OAI) and generates XML/TEI (P5) documents.
