Abstract: In the first ISQ issue of each new year, we take a look back at the prior year to reflect on the successes we have had in standards development in the information community and consider both where we have been and where we are headed. Often people are challenged to understand exactly what standards are and the role they play in the space of information distribution. Likewise they don’t realize the critical importance of promoting awareness about those standards to advance their successful adoption. This is why Information Standards Quarterly exists: to help educate readers about the standards and technology in our community, share experiences of implementation, and report on important initiatives in information distribution from other organizations.
