1108.6 (C) International Standard Serial Number (ISSN)
As discussed in Section 1108.5 (A), applicants must upload a digital copy of each issue, and the file-name for each issue must include the ISSN that has been assigned to the newspaper.
Applicants are encouraged to provide this number in the application itself. Specifically, the number may be provided on the Title screen in the field marked “ISSN.” If the ISSN is included in this portion of the application, it 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 (if any). Therefore, applicants should ensure that the number is entered correctly.
