ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) International Centre

The ISSN Centre is the most comprehensive and authoritative source for the identification of serial publication worldwide. The ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) is an eight-digit number which identifies periodical publications as such, including electronic serials. The ISSN is a numeric code used as an identifier. ISSN assignment is free of charge. ISSN can be used to create bar-code. It is used as the identification code by EAN 13, the major bar-coding symbology used in commercial distribution throughout the world. Each ISSN assigned to a serial publication is registered in an international database, the ISSN Register, formerly known as the ISDS Register (International Serials Data System). The official website features What is ISSN? (All about ISSN, What is ISSN-L? ISSN and electronic publications, Statistics, ISSN Register), Requesting an ISSN (World map of the ISSN Centres), The ISSN Products, The ISSN Worldwide and Documentation (ISSN Manual).
