The ISA Model and Serialization Specifications are maintained by Susanna-Assunta Sansone [1], Philippe Rocca-Serra [1], Alejandra Gonzalez-Beltran [1] and David Johnson [1] on behalf of the ISA Community.

The ISA-Tab RC1 specification authored in 2008, on which the ISA Model and Serialization Specifications 1.0 is based on, was initially drafted by Philippe Rocca-Serra, Susanna-Assunta Sansone and Marco Brandizi [2] and subsequently incorporates input from David Hancock [3], Stephen Harris [4], Allyson Lister [1], Michael Miller [5], Kieran O’Neill [6], Chris Taylor [7], Weida Tong [3], and contributors from the wider ISA Community.

Further feedback on ISA was also gratefully received from the ISA Community during the ISA as a FAIR research object workshop, specifically from Scott Edmunds [8], Peter Li [8], Rob Davidson [9], Chris Hunter [8], Nina Jeliazkova [10], Reza Salek [2], Ken Haug [2], Pablo Conesa [2], Rob Davey [7], Ralf Weber [11], Norman Morrison [3], Marco Roos [12], Egon Willighagen [13] and Jildau Bouwman [14].
