Todd Carpenter

Abstract:

One key aspect of our new era of digital publishing is the standards upon which the publication process rests, from creation through distribution to preservation. The network of organizations developing standards in our community is varied and overlapping. So too are the standards. This chapter covers some background on standards and standards development, highlights some key existing standards in electronic publishing, and discusses some issues needing future standardization and some of the initiatives underway to address these issues.
