Jakobs amasses cutting-edge research on the application of information technology standards in the marketplace, covering topics such as corporate standardization, linguistic qualities of international standards, the role of individuals in standardization, and the development, use, application, and influence of information technology in standardization techniques.

– Book News Inc. (2008)

The book presents this research in an orderly fashion within a single resource, which is a real advantage for the reader. Valuable for institutions with IT-related programs. Recommended.

– CHOICE (June 2008)

The five sections of the book reflect the diversity of research on standardization that is currently being undertaken, and would thus introduce any reader new to the area to a large number of issues.

– Dr. Jason Whalley, Strathclyde Business School, UK
