Serial Item and Contribution Identifier (SICI)
Monday, 15 July 1991
The Serial Item and Contribution Identifier (SICI) standard defines the requirements for a variable length code that provides a unique identification of serial items and contributions contained in them. It is intended for use by all members of the bibliographic community involved in the use of management of serial titles and serial contributions. While the SICI code is intended to be applicable to both automated and human-readable environments, it does not prescribe any specific machine-scannable symbology, nor does it prescribe a specific machine-readable format for electronic transmission of the coded data.
