Definition

Field 027 contains a Standard Technical Report Number (STRN) or an International Standard Technical Report Number (ISRN) assigned to a technical report. The technical report number is usually the primary means of identifying a specific technical report.

STRN

The STRN is formulated according to Standard Technical Report Number Format and Creation, ANSI Z39.23-1997 (http://www.niso.org/apps/group_public/download.php/6524/Standard%20Technical%20Report%20Number%20Format%20and%20Creation.pdf). A STRN has the following parts:

  • Report code. Alphanumeric characters that identify the issuing organization and, in some cases, a series.
  • Sequential group. Numeric characters assigned in sequence by each issuing organization.
  • Local suffix. An optional element in which the issuing organization may include additional information.

The report code and sequential group are separated by a single hyphen ( - ). The sequential group and the local suffix are separated by an ampersand ( & ) or plus sign ( + ). Slashes ( / ) may be used as subdividers within the report code and within the sequential group.

ISRN

The ISRN is formulated according to Standard Technical Report Number Format and Creation, ANSI/NISO Z39.23-1997 (http://www.niso.org/apps/group_public/download.php/6524/Standard%20Technical%20Report%20Number%20Format%20and%20Creation.pdf) or ISO 10444, International Standard Technical Report Number (ISRN) (http://www.iso.org/iso/catalogue_detail.htm?csnumber=18506). Note: ISO 10444 has been withdrawn. An ISRN has the following parts:

  • Report code. Alphanumeric characters that identify the issuing organization and, in some cases, a series.
  • Sequential group. Numeric characters assigned in sequence by each issuing organization.
  • Country code and local suffix. An optional element in which the issuing organization may include additional information.

The report code and sequential group are separated by a double hyphen ( -- ). The country code is preceded by a double hyphen ( -- ) and the local suffix by a plus sign ( + ). Slashes ( / ) and single hyphens ( - ) may be used as subdividers within the report code and within the sequential group.
