Guidelines for ISDS.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
As established within the framework of the UNISIST world science information system, the International Serials Data System (ISDS) is an international network of operational national and regional centers, jointly responsible for the creation and maintenance of computer based data banks, which contain essential information for the identification of serials. The aim of ISDS is to provide a reliable registry of world serial publications, covering the full range of recorded knowledge. It is responsible for assigning to each serial, published under a given title, a unique numeric code identifier, the International Standard Serial Number (ISSN). In addition, ISDS has responsibility for making its data banks available to all participating countries, organizations or individual users. The purpose of this document is to set out policies, practices and procedures for the effective operation of ISDS. Guidelines cover organizational structure, operational policies such as definition of serials, file building and dissemination, and ISDS record structure: content and interchange specifications.
