The ISSN International Centre will participate in the 2018 Charleston Library Conference (U.S.A.) to promote its new services to librarians and publishers. The Director of the ISSN International Centre will give two presentations (Nov. 7th and 8th) focusing on the new Enhanced Transfer Alerting Service (https://journaltransfer.issn.org) and the implementation of standards.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the ISSN International Centre (ISSN IC) have just signed two agreements stating that the ISSN IC is the Registration Authority responsible for the implementation of ISO 4 Information and documentation — Rules for the abbreviation of title words and titles of publications and ISO 3297 Information and documentation — International standard serial number (ISSN).
In October 2018, the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers, the leading global trade association for academic and professional publishers, published its fifth edition of the report entitled “The STM Report: An overview of scientific and scholarly publishing” available at https://www.stm-assoc.org/2018_10_04_STM_Report_2018.pdf.
The 2018 STM Report mentions the ISSN as the key standard for the identification and description of continuing resources. The ISSN Portal (https://portal.issn.org) and the new Enhanced Transfer Alerting Service (ETAS) hosted by the ISSN International Centre (https://journaltransfer.issn.org) are also featured in the 2018 STM Report.
