Standards & Guidelines Platform

This Platform establishes the protocol for standards and best practices for medical publication professionals, documents the processes, and establishes the basis for communicating this information to the ISMPP membership.

Included are the Standards and the Ethics Committees.


Standards Committee

This Committee endeavors to discover, document, and promote best practices in medical publications and publication planning to establish appropriate standards within the profession. The Committee promotes sharing of innovative methods, approaches, and solutions to common challenges, as well as the adoption of consensus guidelines that are pragmatic, repeatable, and significantly enhance the professional practices of ISMPP members.

Ethics Committee

This Committee strives to identify appropriate ethical standards within medical publishing and use them to develop a statement on behalf of the Society to serve as a benchmark for those within the profession.
