Springer Nature Completes Pilot for Streamlined ISSN Workflow

The ISSN International Centre has finished a pilot project with Springer Nature that developed a new, centralized process for assigning International Standard Serial Numbers (ISSNs) to Springer Nature-branded periodicals and book series. According to the press release, “It involves the automated ISSN assignment to pre-publications through transfer of metadata from Springer Nature to the ISSN International Centre which dispatches the metadata to ISSN National Centres, e.g. ISSN Germany, ISSN Singapore, ISSN Switzerland, ISSN UK and ISSN USA.”

Now, Springer Nature has one point of contact for ISSN assignments, making it easier to track serial publications in its internal workflow and transactions with business partners. In addition, more journals and book series will have better identification earlier in the publishing process. Per the press release, “1,309 Springer Nature new titles were identified in 2020 compared to 457 in 2010 and 593 in 2015.”

“As an international publisher, we can handle numerous ISSN application workflows with different national ISSN Centres, depending on the place of publication. This can be time-consuming. The new centralized process streamlines that workflow ensuring, collectively, we can deliver a more efficient process out to the community,” says Rembert Wohlers, data manager at Springer Nature.
