ARTEMIS Backgrounder

What is ARTEMIS?

ARTEMIS (Article Routing, Tracking, Exchange, and Management Integration System) is a state-of-the-art, browser-based workflow, production tracking, and content management system. ARTEMIS replaces FileMaker Pro, eTPThe electronic Transfer Process , an automated method of transferring and tracking files., and Dickens, giving you one system that integrates these three applications.

Who uses ARTEMIS?

All DJS employees use ARTEMIS directly or indirectly. In the future portals will give limited access to ARTEMIS functions to our customers and vendors.

Why are we going to use ARTEMIS

ARTEMIS provides Publishing Services with a single tool for production management. In addition, it streamlines processes associated with production. ARTEMIS coordinates multiple aspects of our business operations in all departments, thereby increasing efficiency and reducing duplication, allowing all departments to access the same single source of data and files.

How will you interact with ARTEMIS?

Like FMPFileMaker Pro, ARTEMIS uses a database to hold and manipulate data. Unlike FMP, ARTEMIS is task based, which means you will be working with workflows composed of discrete tasks, such as MS Prep, Post CE Review, and Send Proof. Instead of large screens full of data, you will see a list of tasks associated with specific articles, issues, ads and front and back matter. You then choose which task to edit and work within a task screen. Because it is browser based, you use ARTEMIS in a web browser.

ARTEMIS Concepts


The four components of ARTEMIS are Articles, Front Matter & Back Matter, Ads, and Issues. You view these components data in their associated details screens. You can also view selected data in the task screens.

Workflows and Tasks

The defined sets of tasks for processing components make up the Workflows. There are workflows for each component and workflows for some subcomponents, such as covers. The ARTEMIS workflows are derived directly from the unique production workflows for each title.

There are a variety of task types, such as Signal tasksTasks that send or receive eTP signals., which send and receive eTP signals, and User tasksTasks that require user interaction or decisions., which require direct user interaction. Once a task is completed, the next task in the workflow opens automatically.


Once you log in to ARTEMIS, it presents your Tasks screen. This screen shows the list of components and tasks associated with a group or user. You can navigate around the system both as an individual and as a member of a group. You can filters the Tasks information based on specific criteria such as an article or issue, an author or article type.

File Management

File management is a fundamental feature of ARTEMIS; files are opened from within ARTEMIS rather than from a production directory on the network.

There is a File ManagerThe list of files organized into folders named for each task in the workflow. You can upload additional files, delete or restore files, rename file, examine file properties, view, download or include the files in Files to Send. section within most task and component detail screens. Files are stored in a folder system based on the task or component that the file(s) is associated with when uploaded. For instance, all the MS Prep files are in an MS Prep folder for that article.
