ISO/CEN PARALLEL ENQUIRY

The CEN Secretary-General has advised the ISO Secretary-General that this ISO/DIS covers a subject

of interest to European standardization. In accordance with the ISO-lead mode of collaboration as

defined in the Vienna Agreement, consultation on this ISO/DIS has the same effect for CEN

members as would a CEN enquiry on a draft European Standard. Should this draft be accepted, a

final draft, established on the basis of comments received, will be submitted to a parallel two-month FDIS

vote in ISO and formal vote in CEN.

To expedite distribution, this document is circulated as received from the committee secretariat.

ISO Central Secretariat work of editing and text composition will be undertaken at publication

stage.

Pour accélérer la distribution, le présent document est distribué tel qu'il est parvenu du

secrétariat du comité. Le travail de rédaction et de composition de texte sera effectué au

Secrétariat central de l'ISO au stade de publication.

THIS DOCUMENT IS A DRAFT CIRCULATED FOR COMMENT AND APPROVAL. IT IS THEREFORE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND MAY NOT BE

REFERRED TO AS AN INTERNATIONAL STANDARD UNTIL PUBLISHED AS SUCH.

IN ADDITION TO THEIR EVALUATION AS BEING ACCEPTABLE FOR INDUSTRIAL, TECHNOLOGICAL, COMMERCIAL AND USER PURPOSES, DRAFT

INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS MAY ON OCCASION HAVE TO BE CONSIDERED IN THE LIGHT OF THEIR POTENTIAL TO BECOME STANDARDS TO

WHICH REFERENCE MAY BE MADE IN NATIONAL REGULATIONS.

ISO/DIS 9707
Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO 9707 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 46, Information and documentation, Subcommittee

SC 8, Quality - Statistics and performance evaluation.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 9707:1991), which has been technically revised

to take account of the developments in electronic publishing.

ISO/DIS 9707
Introduction

This International Standard aims at giving guidance to the international publishing community on the keeping

of publishing statistics. Its first edition was largely based on the UNESCO Revised recommendations

concerning the international standardization of statistics on the production and distribution of books,

newspapers and periodicals [2] and compiled with the close cooperation of UNESCO. These

recommendations, adopted by the General Conference at its twenty-third session, in Sofia, on 1 November

1985, are currently under revision and will need to be considered in future revisions of this International

Standard.

This revision primarily focuses on integrating the economic and technological changes in the media sector,

and especially in the publishing industry. The scope of this International Standard has been shifted to cover

statistics on the production of electronic publications. This revision does not yet provide methods to collect

statistical data on the distribution of electronic media nor the emerging field of print on demand; these sections

in particular should be focussed in the next revision.

Statistics produced by different countries should be directly comparable. Statistical data in the publishing

sector, being generally collected by different institutions such as publishers’ associations, statistical offices

and national libraries, indicate a particular requirement for joint reporting procedures. This International

Standard continues to harmonize the definitions and procedures of data collection with other International

Standards (see clause 2).

The definitions presented in this International Standard are designed for statistical purposes only.

DRAFT INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO/DIS 9707
Information and documentation — Statistics on the production
and distribution of books, newspapers, periodicals and
electronic publications
1 Scope

This International Standard gives guidance on the keeping of statistics to provide standardized information on

various aspects of the production and distribution of printed, electronic and micro-publications (essentially

books, newspapers and periodicals) in a particular country.

For the purposes of this International Standard, the following types of publications are excluded:

a) Publications issued for advertising purposes, provided that the literary or scientific text is subsidiary

and that the publications are distributed free of charge; these include:

⎯ trade catalogues, prospectuses and other types of commercial, industrial and tourist advertising;

⎯ publications advertising products or services supplied by the publisher, even though they may

describe activities or technical progress in some branch of industry or commerce.

b) Publications considered to be of a transitory character; typical examples are:

⎯ timetables, price-lists, telephone directories;
⎯ programmes of entertainments, exhibitions, fairs;
⎯ company regulations, reports and directives and circulars;
⎯ calendars;
⎯ electronic texts under development.
c) Publications in which the text is not the most important part; these include:

⎯ printed music documents provided that the music is more important than the words;

⎯ maps and charts (with the exception of atlases), e.g. astronomical charts, hydrographical and

geographical maps, wall maps, road maps, geological surveys in map form and topographical plans.

2 Normative references

The following normative documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute

provisions in this International Standard. For dated references, subsequent amendments to, or revisions of,

any of these publications do not apply. However, parties to agreements based on this International Standard

are encouraged to investigate the possibility of applying the most recent editions of the normative documents

indicated below. For undated references, the latest edition of the normative document referred to applies.

Members of ISO and IEC maintain registers of currently valid International Standards.
