An electronic publishing system for "The Journal of Chemical Software" was developed. With this system, processes to prepare HTML and PDF(Portable Document Format) files to distribute through the Internet and to create printed issues were integrated. Manuscripts received from authors by electronic medium such as floppy disk or e-mail are converted to the SGML(Standard Generalized Markup Language) documents with authoring software( XSoft InContext2) for SGML. The SGML documents are then converted to HTML file for distribution through the internet and LaTeX source file to make printed issue with programs almost automatically. By applying this system, the operations for publishing with both electronic and printed media were simplified and the quality of printing was greatly improved.
