Hi All,

eLife is pleased to announce today our investment in the development of Texture, bringing us closer to our open-source, end-to-end publisher workflow.

Texture, which was originally created by Substance and has been supported by members of the Substance Consortium, is an open-source toolset for the editing and production of manuscripts, designed to be integrated into publishers' editorial and content-delivery systems. 

We have invested in developing the tool to support our own open-source publishing platform, but – as with all our other open-source projects – any new features will be added in such a way that they can be repurposed by other publishers.

For further details, please see the full announcement at https://elifesciences.org/for-the-press/ca18fdae/elife-invests-in-texture-to-provide-open-source-content-production-tools-for-publishers.

If you'd like more information, please don't hesitate.

Best wishes,



Emily Packer
