[Objective] We developed a paper authoring tool for semantic publishing, which makes the article’s content structured and object-oriented. Each paper is a system with executable, interactive and experiential features. [Methods] First, we divided the content of each paper (metadata, chapters, data, media etc.) into objects organized by digital template. Second, these elements interacted with each other through the event trigger mechanism. Finally, the paper was modified and presented with HTML5 pages, and then, saved as XML documents. [Results] DPaper is available at, which provides a series of functions such as material collection (cloud notes), digital object creation, automatic reference indexing, Word document format conversion in accordance with periodical layouts etc. The paper’s content is object oriented and partial semantization. [Limitations] Compared to conventional paper editors, the DPaper’s digital object editor could not create formulas or graphics, and is not flexible to change layouts. [Conclusions] DPaper could help us compose a structured paper that meets the requirements of semantic publishing.
