ISSN search

If there is no ISSN / CODEN, the system checks whether the journal title can automatically be assigned to an ISSN.

The search for an ISSN from a journal title starts with matching each word of the title exactly with the words in the titles of the FIZ AutoDoc ISSN register. The words should at best be in the same order, with not more than three words between them.

If no match is found, the next step is to use a truncated expansion list of each word, in turn, until a match is found. For example, "spec" will not only yield "spectrum", "spectra", "spectral" but also "spectacle" and "speculation".

If no title match is found from the truncated word lists, a fuzzy expansion list of each word in turn is used. If no match is found, the fuzzy search is more and more expanded.

If this search does not yield an exact match, a ranked list of similar (or identical) journal titles will be displayed. A "Journal Recommendation" might be placed on top of the list. It is generated by the analysis of search queries and delivered documents within AutoDoc. You may choose the requested journal from this list and continue the automated ordering process with "Proceed". If you are still not sure about the requested journal title, you may also use "Proceed Manually". The FIZ AutoDoc Team will then process your order, searching the appropriate title.


In case the ISSN selection according to journal title does not yield a unique match, a ranked list of similar (or identical) journal titles will be displayed.
