ISBNs, ISSNs, DOIs and Legal Deposit

If you or your Institute publishes a book, journal or monograph series in print or online, you may want to consider the following:

  • getting an ISBN (for books and other one-off publications)
  • getting an ISSN for journals or series
  • legal deposit (a legal requirement on every publication in the UK & Ireland)
  • getting a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) for an online work.  If the publication is in Pure it will normally be generated automatically.  If not in Pure then contact for further information
