1.2 Title: The title of the publication should be descriptive of the contents and should be prominently displayed on each issue. Title changes should be considered most carefully. Editors should be aware of the effects of a title change, e.g.,
a. Parts of the run of the same serial may be shelved in separate locations where
publications are arranged by title, and
b. Readers may have difficulty identifying the publication in the catalog.
Any necessary change of title should be made with the first issue of a new volume.
1.3 Statement of Responsibility: The name and complete mailing address of the editor and/or issuing body should appear on the cover and title page of each issue. Telephone number is optional.
1.4 Numbering System: A new volume number should be used with the first issue of each calendar or fiscal year. Volume number, issue number, and date should appear on the cover and title page of each issue.
1.5 Pagination: Continuous pagination should be used for issues within each volume of the periodical, rather than beginning numbering anew with each issue. Only Arabic numerals should be used.
2.2 Binding: The text should be arranged to provide a minimum margin of at least one inch on the inner margin (binding edge) of each page. Staples should be used only in the inner margin, never through the text. Heavy-duty staples should not be used to seal the contents for mailing purposes.
3.2 Book Citations: All book reviews, new book lists, or citations should include the author's full name, complete title from the title page, place of publication, publisher, year of publication, number of pages, price, and source for purchase.
4.2 Postal rates: Editors should inquire at their post offices for the lowest possible rates. Excessive postage costs can often be avoided by use of book, library, or bulk rates.
4.3 Subscription bills: The exact name of the publication, issues included and taxpayer I.D. number should be noted on all subscription invoices.
