The Linking ISSN or ISSN-L is a development of the ISSN standard. Electronic journals may be available in a range of different digital formats, (e.g. PDF, HTML) in addition to print, microform, CD-ROM versions, etc. The Linking ISSN provides a common identifier (usually the ISSN of the first format available) for all of these formats to simplify navigation and management.
