Recommended Practices for the Presentation and Identification of E-Journals

NISO will continue its monthly open teleconference series this coming Monday, October 17th at 3:00 PM. This month, we will be discussing PIE-J, Recommended Practices for the Presentation and Identification of E-Journals. The PIE-J Working Group is developing a Recommended Practice to provide guidance on the presentation and identification of e-journals, particularly in the areas of title presentation and bibliographic history, accurate use of the ISSN, and citation practice. The group's work will assist publishers, platform providers, abstracting and indexing services, knowledgebase providers, aggregators, and other concerned parties in facilitating online discovery, identification, and access for the publications.

Regina Reynolds, ISSN Coordinator at Library of Congress and Cindy Hepfer, Head, Electronic Periodicals Management & Continuing Resources Cataloging, the University at Buffalo (SUNY) will lead the conversation.

The call is free and anyone is welcome to participate in the conversation. To join, simply dial 877-375-2160 and enter the code: 17800743#. All calls are held from 3-4 p.m. Eastern time.

The Open Teleconferences are an quick way to get an update on the status of a NISO initiative. The calls are informal and questions and discussion is welcome. Following the featured discussion, there is also an opportunity for the NISO community to bring up any issue or topic of interest. This is an excellent time for you to raise any concerns, project ideas, or suggestions of focus for NISO in the coming year.

Other upcoming calls will be on E-Book Annotation Sharing and Social Reading, November 14, and an update on the NISO E-Books Special Interest Group on December 12. Please mark your calendars. If you are unable to join us, this call will be recorded and made freely available on the NISO website following the event—as are all of the Open Teleconferences.
