Find books easily using ISBN, title, or author searches. Search using ISBN or ISBN The ISBN (International Standard Book Number) is a digit identification in the form of a physical book or related materials such as eBooks, software, mixed . About ISBNs and digital publications. ISBNs are not only for print books; in fact it is of no relevance in what medium a publication is made available. Provided it is .
You wrote a book, you edited it, and you probably have your cover and pricing and marketing all in line. There is nothing else left than to upload it and enjoy the well-deserved success. Or is there? Many people think that applying for an ISBN is like going to the dentist: a painful, unavoidable necessity. They push it into the back of their mind, try not even to think of it.

If your legacy computer system requires an ISBN to identify a master file, then this should be kept as a purely internal identifier to avoid the possibility of several different versions carrying the same ISBN.
What about proprietary formats e. site Kindle? Some retailers are the sole providers of e-books in a proprietary format that can only be bought through their website.
An example is Kindle format e-books which are only available from site. In this particular case as there is one source of supply, the retailer does not require ISBNs and so it is not strictly necessary for the publisher to assign an ISBN to this particular version.
Publishers can assign an ISBN if they wish, for example if it is useful for their own purposes or they want that version to be listed in third-party databases of available e-books.
As these platforms are generally not interoperable, if ISBNs are assigned they must be unique to each version so as to avoid identification problems if those versions should later become available through third parties. Publishers should provide their conversion service with all the ISBNs that they will need to identify each of the versions that they will produce.
Note that the assignment of an ISBN has no implications for rights ownership.
How does this affect the assignment of ISBNs? Although the content, file format and DRM usage constraints will be set by the publisher or intermediary for a particular e-book and delivered to the user in this way, it is still possible that the user experience may vary according to the device or software of the user.
When the variation results from limitations of the capability of the device or software used to read the e-book then this does not impact on ISBN assignment. The same ISBN should be used because the same product is being delivered each time. Note that provision of mono or colour images in separate e-publications intended respectively for mono or colour devices constitutes a change of content — and therefore of ISBN.
However if colour images are provided, but a particular device has only a mono display, that is simply a device limitation and does not imply a second ISBN. The bar code might also have other information embedded in it, like the price of the book and the currency in which it is priced.
Okay, do I need to have a bar code too? Only if you plan to sell your book in bookstores.
Many publishers put them on their books anyway. No, ISBN is administered by a private company for the use of the international book trade. Copyright is administered by the Library of Congress and is an extension of intellectual property law.
Can self-publishers get an ISBN?
A self-publisher is still a publisher, so yes, you just apply for an ISBN like anyone else. Go to myidentifiers. The least economical choice is to download 1 ISBN.
If you ever publish another edition of your book, or another book entirely, you will need more than one ISBN. I suggest you download the 10 pack. What do ISBNs cost? Many people are pondering this question, so far without an answer.
