The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has announced the publication of a new Recommended Practice: PIE-J: Presentation & Identification of E-Journals (NISO RP-16-2013). This Recommended Practice was developed to provide guidance on the presentation of e-journals - particularly in the areas of title presentation, accurate use of ISSN, and citation practices - to publishers and platform providers, as well as to solve some long-standing concerns of serials, collections, and electronic resources librarians.
In addition to the recommendations, the document includes extensive examples of good practices using screenshots from various publishers' online journals platforms; a discussion of helpful resources for obtaining title history and ISSN information; an overview of the International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) and key points for using it correctly; an explanation of the Digital Object Identifier (DOI®), the registration agency CrossRef, and tips on using DOIs for journal title management; and a review of related standards and recommended practices.
The PIE-J draft Recommended Practice and a brochure summarizing the recommendations are available from the NISO PIE-J workroom website at www.niso.org/workrooms/piej/.
