1110.7 (B) (2) Identifying the Periodicals
For each contribution in the group, the applicant should provide the title of the periodical where that contribution was first published. Specifically, this information should be provided on the Title screen in the field marked Title of Periodical.
In addition, applicants should provide the volume, number, issue date, and ISSN number (if any) for each periodical, as well as the page number(s) (if any) where the contribution appeared within that periodical.
In each case, the applicant should provide the precise date of first publication (month, day, and year) for the periodical. This information should be provided on the Title screen in the field marked Date of First Publication. For guidance in completing this portion of the application, see Chapter 600, Section 612.
The applicant should identify the country where the periodical was published for the first time by selecting one of the countries listed in the drop down menu marked Nation of First Publication. The registration specialist may use this information to determine if the contributions are eligible for copyright protection in the United States. If the nation of first publication is unknown, the applicant may select “not known” from the drop down menu.
If the applicant fails to provide a title for the periodical, or the date and nation of first publication, the application will not be accepted by the electronic registration system.
