From the cradle to the digital vault: Tracking the path of e-journals

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The ISSN International Centre has developed a suite of services for information professionals who want to identify digital journals and their publishers, and find out if these digital journals are being archived in a sustainable manner. The ISSN portal is the essential reference for obtaining controlled and updated metadata about digital continuing resources in reusable formats. Through the implementation of the ISO 3297 standard, a new version of which was published in October 2020, the ISSN International Centre and its network of more than 90 national centers identify about 50,000 new continuing resource titles each year and the ISSN database contains more than 2 million references to date. Building on this unique asset and on numerous partnerships, the ISSN International Center offers a service for tracking title transfers between publishers (journaltransfer.issn.org) and a service for reporting long-term archived titles (keepers.issn.org). This momentum will be continued as part of our 2024 Strategy, which will provide information professionals with identification services for publishers and organizations, as well as better tools to track URLs for online resources. The presentation will provide an overview of the current services and gather suggestions and opinions on our 2024 Strategy.
