ISSN member countries defined new strategic orientations during the last meeting of the General Assembly in April 2012.

ISSN member countries identified 4 new strategic areas to address:

  • analysis of changes in the publishing world and their consequences for the ISSN system,
  • development of Linked Data, technological and bibliographical changes and consequences for the ISSN system,
  • definition and implementation of new products and services, and
  • definition and implementation of the new information system for the ISSN International Centre.

The decision was taken to continue the current strategic plan through to 2014, so these 4 topics could be completely analysed with a view to integrating them into the future strategic plan.
