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 designed for publishers and authors. The idea is to facilitate seamless interaction between authors and journals, improving the overall speed of digital publishing.

Scientists use Texture to author modern web-ready publication.
Peer review
Publishers receive submissions as a .dar file. Reviewers use Texture to add comments, after which authors submit a revised version.
Journal production teams use Texture to add metadata and perform assisted quality checking of the content.
Author proofing
Authors log in through the publisher’s website and use Texture to respond to publisher queries, make final changes and approve it for publication.

Collaboratively designed by scientists and publishers

Scientists and publishers are helping us define the features that best support their daily needs. Their input will take Texture further and help remove the technical difficulties from publishing. That way scientists can focus their full attention on research and publishers can focus on ensuring high quality content.
