1109.6 (C) International Standard Serial Number (ISSN)

1109.6 (C) International Standard Serial Number (ISSN)

As discussed in Section 1109.5 (A), applicants must upload a digital copy of each issue, and if an International Standard Serial Number (“ISSN”) has been assigned to the newsletter, the applicant should include the ISSN in the file name for each issue. If an ISSN has not been assigned to the newsletter, the publisher may request a number from the U.S. ISSN Center, as discussed in Section 1109.5 (B).

Applicants are encouraged to provide the ISSN in the application itself. If the number is entered on the Title screen in the field marked “ISSN”, 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. Therefore, applicants should ensure that the number is entered correctly.
