A visual editor for research.

* Texture is currently in beta and optimised for publishers.
An updated version will add missing features to fully support scientific authoring.

A familiar editing experience

Texture feels like the word processor you are used to. It allows structured editing of scientific content and includes support for Figures, Tables, References, Supplementary files and more.

Document Archive

Texture uses an open file format (.dar) for storage. It is essentially a zip archive, containing the manuscript as a standard JATS XML file, as well as additional assets such as images and data files.

Supporting an end to end publishing workflow

Texture is the first scientific editor, that is designed for publishers and authors. The idea is that interaction between authors and journals becomes seamless, improving the overall speed of digital publishing.

Scientist uses Texture to author modern web-ready publication.
Peer review
Publisher receives submission as a .dar file. Texture is used by reviewers to add comments and by authors to submit a revised version.
Journal production team uses Texture to add metadata and perform assisted quality checking of the content.
Author proofing
Author logs in at the publisher’s website and uses Texture to respond to publisher queries, make final changes and approve it for publication.

Co-designed by scientists and publishers

Scientists and publishers are helping us to define new features, that best support their daily use-cases. With their input we want to take Texture further and help remove the technical pain points from publishing. So that scientists can focus fully on their research, and publishers can focus on ensuring high quality content.
