University publication series

Most of the publications in the collection Monographs and series are monographs that are not part of any publication series. Some units and research centres have their own publication series. The units are responsible for establishing the series and coordinating the publishing. The ISSN is an international identifier for a publication series that can be used to identify the series. An ISSN can be applied for a series in which the publishing activity is continuous and, in principle, indefinite. Multi-volume works and publication series belonging to projects are not ongoing publications, as they are usually designed to have an end date. When establishing new series, ISSNs can be applied for from the The Finnish national ISSN Agency.
