4.New Records

1st issue in hand t.p.:

STATISTIQUES DE

RECETTES PUBLIQUES

DES PAYS MEMBRES DE L’OCDE

REVENUE STATISTICS

OF OECD MEMBER COUNTRIES

1965-1984

2nd issue in hand t.p.:

REVENUE STATISTICS

1965-1985

3rd issue in hand t.p.:

REVENUE STATISTICS

OF OECD MEMBER COUNTRIES

STATISTIQUES DE

RECETTES PUBLIQUES

DES PAYS MEMBRES DE L’OCDE

1965-1987

New record? (circle one): Yes

Why?

 The French title was chosen as the title proper. It disappears with the 1965-1985 issue and that requires a new record. No new record is needed, however, for the third issue since it represents only a change in the order of parallel titles.

Back to Top

Example 2.

1st issue in hand t.p.:

The Steel Market

In 1992

2nd issue in hand t.p.:

The Steel Market

and

Prospects

For 1994

3rd issue in hand t.p.:

The Steel Market

In 1994

and

Prospects

For 1995

New record? (circle one): Yes

Why?

 There is a change within the first five words for the 1994 issue, so a new record is required for it.

Example 3.

1st issue in hand t.p.:

COUNTRY PROFILE

Costa Rica

Panama

1995-96

2nd issue in hand t.p.:

COUNTRY PROFILE

Costa Rica

1998-99

New record? (circle one): Yes

Why?

 "Costa Rica" disappears from the title with the 1998-99 issue and that is a change within the first five words as well as a change in scope for the journal.
