Open Type fonts

Scalable computer fonts conforming to the ISO open standard on typography and which can be used across computer platforms. Open Type fonts are now produced by virtually all type foundries and are available for a myriad of alphabets and scripts.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on issues with fonts and diacritical marks.
