Information and documentation -- Bibliographic references -- Part 2: Electronic documents or parts thereof

_________________________

 

1: Scope

This part of ISO 690 specifies the elements to be included in bibliographic references to electronic documents. It sets out a prescribed order for the elements of the reference and establishes conventions for the transcription and presentation of information derived from the source electronic document.

This part of ISO 690 is intended for use by authors and editors in the compilation of references to electronic documents for inclusion in a bibliography, and in the formulation of citations within the text corresponding to the entries in that bibliography. It does not apply to full bibliographic descriptions as required by librarians, descriptive and analytic bibliographers, indexers, etc.

 

... some text omitted here ....

 

 

3: Definitions

For the purposes of this International Standard the following definitions apply:

3.1: author: Person or corporate body responsible for the intellectual or artistic content of a document. [ISO 690:1987]
[French term: auteur]

3.2: bulletin board: Computer system in which information and messages concerning a given topic or topics are made available for viewing by remote users who access the system.
[French term: babillard Èlectronique]

3.3: computer program: Schedule or plan that specifies actions expressed in a form suitable for execution by a computer. [ISO/TR 9544:1988]
[French term: programme informatique]

3.4: contribution: Independent unit forming part of a document. [adapted from ISO 690:1987]
[French term: contribution]

3.5: database: Collection of data objects stored together, in electronic form, according to one schema and made accessible by computer.
[French term: base de donnÈes]
NOTE - Some databases, or files within a database, may also constitute a monograph or serial publication. In cases where it can be readily determined that a specific electronic document is a monograph or serial, those terms should normally be preferred over the broader term "database".

3.6: discussion list: Discussion group on a given topic or topics that takes place over a computer network among subscribers to an electronic mailing list and in which the contributions from individual participants are sent automatically as electronic messages to the entire list of subscribers.
[French term: forum de discussion]

3.7: document: Recorded information which can be treated as a unit in a documentation process regardless of its physical form and characteristics. [ISO 5127/1:1983]
[French term: document]

3.8: edition: Whole set of copies of a document whose data corresponds in all respects to a single copy used as a master (see also: version).
[French term: Èdition]

3.9: electronic document: Document existing in an electronic form to be accessed by computer technology.
[French term: document Èlectronique]

3.10: electronic message system: System that transmits messages in electronic form over a communications network of computers.
[French term: systËme de communication Èlectronique]

3.11: file: Organized collection of data, usually comprising related records.
[French term: fichier]

3.12: host document: Document containing contributions or separately identifiable component parts that are not physically or bibliographically independent. [ISO 690:1987]
[French term: document hÙte]

3.13: monograph: Non-serial bibliographic item, i.e. an item either complete in one part or complete (or intended to be completed) in a finite number of separate parts. [ISO 690:1987]
[French term: monographie]

3.14: publisher: Person or organization responsible for the production and dissemination of a document. [ISO 5127/3a:1981]
[French term: Èditeur]

3.15: record: Group of data usually treated as a unit; subset of a file.
[French term: enregistrement]

3.16: serial: Publication, in any medium, issued in successive parts, usually having numeric or chronological designations, and intended to be continued indefinitely. [Adapted from ISO 3297:1986]
[French term: publication en sÈrie]

3.17: title: Word or phrase, usually appearing on the document, by which it is convenient to refer to it, which may be used to identify it, and which often (though not invariably) distinguishes it from any other document. [ISO 690:1987]
[French term: titre]

3.18: version: Form of a document which has been modified without changing the identity of the document (see also: edition).
[French term: version]

 

 

 

4: Sources of information

The principal source of data contained in a reference is the item itself. The elements of the reference come from the electronic document itself or from accompanying documentation; in no case shall the reference require information that is not available from the source consulted.

The data recorded in the reference shall refer to the specific copy of the document that was seen or used. For example, the data in a bibliographic reference to a document on the Internet shall reflect the title, dates, location information, etc. for the particular version that was seen and the particular network location from which that version was accessed.

The preferred source of data within the item is the screen that displays the title or its equivalent (e.g., the initial screen display that follows sign-on or that carries the copyright notice). If the electronic document lacks such a screen, the necessary data may be taken from an alternative source, such as accompanying documentation or the container.

 

 

 

 

5: Outline of bibliographic references

The outlines that follow are designed to identify the constituent elements of bibliographic references to electronic documents and to establish a standard order or sequence for the presentation of those elements. The outlines cover references to databases, computer programs, electronic monographs, serials, bulletin boards and other electronic message systems, and parts of or contributions thereto. The same general framework applies to all these documents but those that have characteristics which are peculiar to their form of publication are dealt with in separate sections.

Required and optional bibliographic elements are indicated as such in parentheses following the name of the element.

Elements are required only if they are applicable to the item being cited and the information is readily available from the document itself or its accompanying material. It is recommended that elements listed as optional should also be included in the reference if the information is readily available.

Specifications relating to each of the elements listed in these outlines are given in clause 7.

For electronic serials the issue designation shall be as complete as possible. It shall include the chronological designation (month, year, etc.) and numbering (volume number, issue number, etc.) given in the source.

 

7.6.2: Designation of the first issue only

If the reference is to the whole of an electronic serial that has not ceased, the chronological designation and/or numbering of the first issue only shall be recorded, followed by a hyphen and one space, e.g. "January 1995- , vol. 1, no. 1- ." If the beginning date is not found on the opening screen(s) of the electronic serial or in the accompanying documentation, the date of the earliest entry in the serial should be used, if known.

 

7.6.3: Designation of a complete or partial run

In a reference identifying either a complete or partial run of an electronic serial, the chronological designation and/or numbering of the first and last issues shall be recorded. If the beginning and ending dates are not found on the opening screen(s) of the electronic serial or in the accompanying documentation, the dates of the earliest and latest entries in the serial should be used, if known.

If no place of publication can be ascertained, a phrase such as "place of publication unknown", "sine loco" or an equivalent abbreviation (e.g. "s.l.") should be recorded in lieu of a place name. For online documents that are accessed by means of a computer network, the place of publication element may be omitted if it can not be determined from other information in the source. In these cases, however, the network location of the document shall be given (see clause 7.12.1).

 

... some text omitted here ....

 

 

7.8.3: Publisher unknown

If no publisher's name is given in the source, a phrase such as "publisher unknown" or an equivalent abbreviation (e.g. "s.n.") should be recorded in lieu of a name.

In these cases, however, the network address from which the specific document was accessed shall be given (see clause 7.12.1).

 

 

 

7.9: Dates

 

7.9.1: Presentation

If it is deemed necessary because of the frequency of updates or revisions to an electronic document, the dates of publication, update, revision or citation may include the day, month, year, and time of day (e.g. 18 February 1997; 14:04:28 EST).

Years shall be transcribed in arabic numerals.

Dates that are transcribed completely in numeric form shall be in accordance with ISO 8601 (e.g. 1997-01-20).

 

7.9.2: Electronic documents spanning more than one date

If an electronic document spans more than one date and is complete, such as a database to which no records are being added or an online serial that is no longer being published, the beginning and ending dates should be given (e.g. "September 1975-August 1984"). If the beginning and ending dates are not found on the opening screen(s) of the document or in its documentation, the dates of the earliest and latest entries in the document should be used, if known.

If an electronic document spans more than one year and is not yet complete, such as a database that is still being updated or an active serial, the beginning date of the document shall be given followed by a hyphen and one space, e.g. "June 1991- ". If the beginning date is not found on the opening screen(s) of the document or in its documentation, the date of the earliest entry in the document should be used, if known.

 

7.9.2.2: Date of publication unknown

If the date of publication cannot be determined from the source, the date of copyright shall be recorded in its place. If no date of copyright is available and there are no other reliable indications of the date of publication for the electronic document, the phrase "date unknown" or its equivalent shall be recorded in lieu of a date.

Optionally, for online documents that span more than one date (e.g. an entire database, electronic bulletin board or other electronic message system), the date of publication element may be omitted if it can not be determined from the source. In such cases, a date of citation shall be supplied in square brackets (see 7.9.4).

 

7.9.3: Date of Update/Revision

Electronic documents may be frequently updated or revised between editions or versions. Even when a document is closed to the addition of new records, it may still be updated for error correction or other maintenance. Where applicable, the date of the update or revision being cited shall be given after the date of publication using the terms given in the source (e.g. "updated January 1997" or "rev. 1 March 1997").

 

7.9.4: Date of citation

The date on which the electronic document was actually seen shall be given in square brackets for documents which may be subject to changes (e.g. online documents) or when no other reliable date can be found in the source or the documentation. The date of citation shall be preceded by the word "cited" or an equivalent term.

EXAMPLES

[cited 3 September 1997]
[cited 1997-07-28]
[cited 17 May 1997; 21:15 GMT]

In a reference to a separate contribution in an electronic document, the details relating to the contribution (e.g. its author and title) shall precede the details referring to the host document as a whole, and shall be clearly distinguished from it by typography, punctuation or a word such as "In". The numeration and location of the contribution within the host document shall be placed after the bibliographic data for the host and preceding the notes, statement of availability and standard number, if applicable.

 

7.14.3: Numeration within host document or system

The record number or other numbers assigned to a part or contribution as its identifier within the host document or system should be recorded when such numeration will remain constant each time the part or contribution is retrieved from the host. This number should be preceded by a descriptive phrase, such as "Record no.", "Item no.", "Accession no.", or an equivalent phrase appropriate to the document.

 

7.14.4: Location within host document

The location of the part or contribution within the host document shall be given if the format of the document includes pagination or an equivalent internal referencing system. This specification of location should be designated in this order of preference:

1) page, screen, paragraph, or line number when these features are fixed features of the part or contribution or of the database (e.g. "pp. 5-21"; "lines 100-150)";
2) labeled part, section, table, scene, or other text-related designation;
3) any host-specific designation.

If the document does not include pagination or an equivalent internal referencing system, the extent of the item may be indicated in square brackets in terms such as the total number of lines, screens, etc. (e.g. "[35 lines]" or "[approx. 12 screens]").
