Did you spot the ISSN on the latest issue of Preview? We decided to apply for an ISSN so that Preview is now easier to reference and will be maintained as part of the National Archive.
When citing Preview it should be ‘ISSN 2513-857X’ exactly as shown between the quotes (and as shown on the front of the magazine). This is an ISSN for the electronic version of the magazine, and if we ever decide to issue in an additional format, we will need to request an additional ISSN to go with that.
You will find Preview on issuu here, and new issues will be added to this stack as they are published. They will all carry the same ISSN, and be distinguished by the issue name, in this example ‘Winter 2017’. This stack has the three 2015 print editions as well as all the electronic only editions from Winter 2016 to now. You can view from the website, or the app (Android or Apple). They should all also be available to download as pdf if you wish to read offline. If you feel the need to print the pdf, A5 is a workable size.
If you are referencing Preview from Winter 2017 onward, please use the ISSN to ensure that there is no ambiguity.
We had three issues of Preview this year. Catch up with all of them in the new e-reader.
As you hopefully saw in my previous post, we have selected Issuu as our publishing platform for Preview. The first non-paper version will come out next Spring, but in the meantime, you can view all of the 2015 editions and our ASEC brochure in the tool.
I want to show you some of the key features that will make your reading experience as good as it can be.
