The ARPHA Writing Tool (AWT) is a versatile online authoring system that encapsulates the full authoring and publishing process in one seamless workflow.

In this computer demonstration, Pensoft will showcase different capabilities that AWT has for importing and exporting many types of data into a manuscript. The two most important novel article formats that we want to address are the Species Conservation Profile (SPC) and the Alien Species Profile (ASP). These allow seamless integration of ARPHA articles with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List. We will also review the other article formats that AWT supports such as taxonomic papers and data papers.

After the presentation, the user should be very familiar with not only starting and writing a paper in AWT, but also with linking up the data, which is part of the manuscript, with his or her own data processing environment.
