About the Agency
The Australian ISSN Agency was established in the National Library of Australia in 1973. The Agency has sole responsibility for ISSN allocation to serial titles published in Australia. Details of all serial titles registered by the Agency are sent to the International Centre and this data is published in the ISSN Portal. The Portal includes more than 1.6 million ISSNs for serials published throughout the world. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information about subscribing to the ISSN Portal.
ISSNs are free of charge and an application for an ISSN can be made using the online application form.
