ISSNs

Best practices for SIM magazines

For every new issue the designer should work with his/her CE liaison to produce a draft of the cover, masthead, and TOC three weeks before the MIC date. The CE department then will apply to the Library of Congress for the ISSN  and will notify the editor and designer when the number is available. The edit/design team will make sure the ISSN is included in the postal ID statement on the last page of the issue.
