Many publishing houses are moving to online manuscript submissions and processing systems to handle the work of receiving, reviewing, and publishing scholarly documents. Separate digital archives, integrated library systems, and gateways or portals of various sorts store, organize, maintain, and deliver documents to users. NIST Integrated Knowledge EditorialNet (NIKE), a project designed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Information Services Division, combines all of these elements. NIKE streamlines NIST's complex manuscript submissions workflow and put scientific documents within the public grasp. A comprehensive digital knowledge management system, the NIKE infrastructure integrates a Web interface; a publications database of bibliographic and process information; a server of full text, video, audio, and database documents; and an integrated library system that provides access both to bibliographic data and digital documents.
