International Identifier for serials
and other continuing resources, in the electronic and print world


New ISSN Centre soon…

The ISSN International centre and ITAR-TASS, the Russian news agency which manages the Russian Book Chamber in Moscow, signed a working agreement on December 3rd, 2015 to create the ISSN Centre of the Federation of Russia.

The Federation of Russia has recently acceded to the Statutes of the International Centre for the registration of serial publications which was established in Paris as a result of an agreement between UNESCO and the Government of the French Republic.

The new Russian ISSN centre should start operating in January 2016.

Latindex and the ISSN IC: Memorandum of Understanding

Latindex and the ISSN International Centre signed a Memorandum of Understanding in September 2015. The purpose of this three-year agreement is to promote both parties and exchange metadata about serials. Latindex centres will benefit from specific accesses to the ISSN database while ISSN International Centre will use Latindex records to enhance ROAD. Another objective is to assign identifiers to serial resources indexed by Latindex but not covered by the ISSN Register.
