1107.6 (C) International Standard Serial Number (ISSN)
If an International Standard Serial Number (“ISSN”) has been assigned to the serial, the applicant may provide this information on the Title screen. Specifically, the applicant should select ISSN from the drop down menu marked ISN Type and provide the relevant number in the field marked International Standard Number.
If an ISSN is included in the application, the number will appear on the certificate of registration, and in the online public record for the claim. The U.S. Copyright Office will not review the ISSN to determine if it matches the number appearing on the deposit copies. Therefore, applicants should ensure that the number is entered correctly.
For a general discussion of ISSN numbers, see Chapter 600, Section 612.6 (C).
