Reviews and Testimonials
"Standards (the concept) and standardization (the process) are powerful expanding paradigms impacting most of human activity. The International Journal of IT Standards and Standardization Research (JITSR) offers the only broad view of this field currently in print. Other journals specialize in the European view, the computer standards view, or the process view. JITSR offers an overview, sharing the opinions, papers and ideas of leading researchers and practitioners in this exciting field. Reading JITSR helps researchers keep abreast of the latest work, technical managers better understand the investment they make in standardization activities and technical specialists increase their effectiveness in their chosen technical field."

The research papers in the JITSR are a very good way to stay informed about new developments in standardization research. As a researcher and teacher myself, I also like the position papers very much by practitioners in the standardization field. The ideas, new developments, and policy issues that these practitioners raise are a stimulus and guide to my own work.

The JITSR provides a forum for writers from academia, government and industry in the newly developing field of standards research". Only with a publishing outlet such as this can we fully develop this new discipline, so important to the economy and society. I look forward to more issues and topics over the coming year as more universities and corporations recognize the value of this line of research and teaching."

This journal is already making a difference as the first journal totally dedicated to the academic and practical aspects of standardization and standardization research.
