A pandoc-based layout workflow for scholarly journals

In my work, an academic publishing service for Open Access journals, we never provided any solution for layout and typesetting of articles. Journals with no support in this complex task explored a variety of solutions, mostly dependent on the most common routines from authors (and of course from editors too) in their field of studies. The two main options are the use of LaTeX, in the few happy disciplines whose authors are accustomed with this typesetting technology, and the use of external professional support — mostly based on InDesign.
