Network Working Group S. RozenfeldRequest for Comments: 3044 ISSN International CentreCategory: Informational January 2001Using The ISSN (International Serial Standard Number) asURN (Uniform Resource Names) within an ISSN-URN NamespaceStatus of this MemoThis memo provides information for the Internet community. It doesnot specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of thismemo is unlimited.Copyright NoticeCopyright (C) The Internet Society (2001). All Rights Reserved.AbstractThis document presents how the ISSN - International Standard SerialNumber - which is a persistent number for unique identification ofserials widely recognised and used in the bibliographic world, can besupported within the Uniform Resource Name (URN) framework as aspecific URN namespace identifier.An ISSN URN resolution system using the ISSN identifier as Uniformresource Name within an ISN URN Namespace has been developed by theISSN International Centre (ISSN-IC) and is operating as ademonstrator to evaluate all requirements to deploy it in anoperational environment.This proceeds from concepts and proposals developed in several IETFRFCs emphasising the way to implement and to use "recognised"existing numbering system within the URN framework (RFC 2248, RFC2141, RFC 2611).Rozenfeld Informational [Page 1]

Full Copyright Statement ...................................... 151. IntroductionThe ISSN International Centre has undertaken in 1999-2000 an URNimplementation taking advantage of the functional compatibilitybetween the ISSN and the URN.The present implementation at the ISSN-IC Centre based on IETF RFCson URN includes a centralised resolution system which allows directaccess to electronic resources by using the ISSN identifiers asUniform Resource Names within an ISSN URN Namespace.It demonstrates that the URN can integrate existing identifiers fromwell established identification schemes used by the bibliographiccommunity.Nevertheless, to deploy this demonstrator into a wider operationalsystem a responsible body or infrastructure is needed to assignnamespaces and manage an RDS/NAPTR global resolution framework. Itis intended here that serials refer to all forms of serials publishedin printed form as well as in form of electronic resources. Sincethis document contains a Registration form for an ISSN URN Namespace,this form also includes some paragraphs already present in otherparts of this document.All figures and descriptions are dated 13 July 2000.Rozenfeld Informational [Page 2]
