International Standard Serial Number

The ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) is an internationally binding standard number and serves to provide concise and unique identification of publications appearing consecutively in a printed or other form (e.g. CD-ROM, Internet).

  • It comprises eight digits formed from the (Arabic) numbers 0 to 9. The last number is a verification digit and may also be an “X”.
  • Publications that regularly or sporadically appear consecutively in several parts and carry a numerical or chronological description (consecutive compilations, e.g. magazines, address books, series, loose-leaf works) may contain an ISSN.
    Generally speaking, a new ISSN is required when the title is changed. It is also possible to apply for an ISSN before the first issue has even been published.
  • The allocation of an ISSN is not associated with any copyright or title protection.
  • The ISSN is recorded, along with the bibliographical details of the corresponding title, in the Austrian Bibliography.
