Structured Authoring Survey from Scriptorium

by Tom Johnson on Jan 10, 2011 •
categories: technical-writing

Scriptorium Survey on Structured AuthoringSarah O'Keefe at Scriptorium is running a survey on structured authoring. You can take the survey here.

Sarah defines authoring as "a publishing workflow that lets you define and automatically enforce consistent organization of information." Typical structured authoring models include DITA, DocBook, S1000D, ATA, and SPL. Flare, Robohelp, wikis, and other help authoring tools and platforms that do not enforce a structure aren't typically considered structured authoring.

If you've been following my blog for a while, you may remember my brief interview with Sarah from the 2009 STC Summit.
