NISO Publishes Standards Tag Suite (NISO STS) Standard

NISO news release: “The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) announces the publication of a new American National Standard, STS: Standards Tag Suite, ANSI/NISO Z39.102-2017 <>. The purpose of this “standard for standards,” which will be known as NISO STS, is to define a suite of XML elements and attributes that describes the full-text content and metadata of standards. NISO STS provides a common format that preserves intellectual content of standards independent of the form in which that content was originally delivered. This standard includes two implementations: the Interchange Tag Set and the Extended Tag Set. These tag sets, built from the elements and attributes defined in the Suite, provide models for standards publishing and interoperability. NISO STS builds upon the existing, widely used standard for journal publishers, ANSI/NISO Z39.96-2015, JATS: Journal Article Tag Suite <>, and a variant of JATS, ISOSTS, the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) version of STS <> created in 2011. NISO STS has benefited from this robust foundation and broad industry expertise…”
