NISO Releases Recommended Practice on Exchanging Serial Content

NISO (National Information Standards Organization) published a new recommended practice, Protocol for Exchanging Serial Content (PESC). It suggests the best way to manage digital serial content packaging elements to help content providers and content recipients track what was delivered and received.

“Many diverse organizations—such as publishers, content aggregators, archives, and indexing services—exchange and work with the heterogeneous digital files that make up serial content,” says Kimberly A. Tryka, co-chair of the NISO PESC Working Group. “Organizations that exchange serial content know that lack of consistency in packaging and describing the items being exchanged leads to frustration and inefficiency. The PESC recommended practice is intended to inform members of the scholarly information community about preferred practices for packaging and exchanging serial content which can enable the creation of better automated processes to receive and manage serial content.”
