By Sharon Lierse, Chair, IPEd Standards Working Party (ISWP)

The ISWP is nearing the final stages of the Standards review. We have been meeting weekly to discuss the content in detail and respond to feedback from specialist external reviewers. Once we have completed work on the current draft, there will be further consultation with IPEd’s boards, committees and members.

We will discuss our review process at the 11th IPEd Editors Conference. Please join us at the IPEd plenary session on Tuesday 9 May from 12 pm to learn more.

In the meantime, if you have any queries about the ISWP or the Standards, please do not hesitate to contact Sharon Lierse:​
