The New Electronic Submissions Standards Environment—Are you ready?

Posted 01 June 2010 | By

According to Webster's Dictionary, a standard is something established by authority, custom or general consent as a model or example. Modern standards use documents as a medium to publish uniform specifications, guidelines, criteria, methods, processes, practices or policies. Standards can be mandatory or voluntary. There are de facto standards, which are not mandatory or voluntary but are a requirement by public acceptance. Other standards may be de jure, or formal legal requirements enforced by government agencies or institutions with public authority.
