IBPA's Advocacy Committee is working on an "Industry Standards Checklist for a Professionally Published Book." The purpose of the checklist is to give book authors and industry professionals an at-a-glance gauge of the professional presentation of any book. It is broken into two sections: (1) Content and (2) Production.
Anticipated publication = February 2017. Watch this page for updates as they become available.
