Gain complimentary access to select ISPE Good Practice Guides through the new portal. Members appreciate the practical knowledge and real-world examples built into our Good Practice Guides, so we made them available for free on the Portal.

ISPE launched the Guidance Document Portal in January as a new member benefit to provide you with complimentary access to 24 ISPE Good Practice Guides. The Portal was developed to provide easy access to vital information wherever you are. ISPE members now have their own virtual bookshelves for access to their publications whenever it is convenient.

Our most recent member survey confirmed that Guidance Documents are the most valued ISPE information products. Members appreciate the practical knowledge and real-world examples built into our Good Practice Guides, so we made them available for free on the Portal.

FAST ACCESS

In the first 90 days, over 6,000 members from around the globe visited the Portal to explore its contents, and many have returned multiple times. The three most viewed titles so far are Applied Risk Management for C&Q, Technology Transfer, and Good Engineering Practice.

The Portal also provides quick and convenient access to your purchased publications: Members who purchase a Baseline Guide, GAMP, or PQLI title in print or searchable PDF format can view the publication immediately through the Portal.

We’re pleased to see so much traffic because it tells us that we have your attention. Now that we have it, we’re determined to provide you with the information you need when you need it. The key to doing so lies both in the content and the technology.

The design is clean and simple and the guides are displayed in an appealing book-style layout across two pages. The Portal works on any browser and no special software is needed to view the publications. Publications can be accessed quickly across all devices.
