Welcome to the Transfer Alerting Service

The NISO Transfer Code of Practice sets out best practices for scholarly publishers to ensure that journal transfers between parties occur with minimum disruption and that the content remains accessible. The Transfer Alerting Service (TAS) has been designed to facilitate communication of journal transfers and is hosted by the International ISSN Centre.

The TAS is made up of:

  • A database of journal transfers which can be searched or browsed. This allows librarians and other interested parties to access the details of journal transfers announced through the TAS and provides an archive of transfer information supplied by publishers using the service.
  • A notification service available through an RSS feed or by signing-up to a dedicated mailing list. Librarians, information professionals, and representatives of other organisations with an interest in journal transfers are encouraged to sign up to the list. Every time a journal transfer is announced through the TAS, registrants receive email alerts detailing the journal(s) involved, bibliographic information, and contact details for the publishers involved.
  • An API which may be used by interested parties to query or integrate with the TAS.

Publishers are required to register with the ISSN International Centre to provide journal transfer information for announcement through the TAS. Under the terms of the Code, endorsing publishers are required to use the service whenever they receive a new journal.

In order to log transfer notifications, publishers need to have an ISSN International Centre account and log-in. For publishers not yet registered with the ISSN International Centre, an account will need to be created. Please contact transfer@issn.org.
