General Introduction

Introduction to the NISO STS

The NISO Standards Tag Suite (NISO STS) describes an XML model for normative standards documents produced by standards organizations (international, national, standards development organizations, consortia, and others). NISO STS is based on ISO STS, which was in turn based on the Journal Article Tag Set (ANSI/NISO Z39-96-2012). The intent of NISO STS is to provide a common format in which standards bodies, standards producing organizations, publishers, commercial vendors, and archives can publish and exchange standards documents.
