The International Centre in Paris of the International Serials Data System (ISDS) maintains the database of world serial publications and functions through a network of national and regional centres in various countries. ISDS is an intergovernmental organization established within the framework of the Unesco‐UNISIST programme. The Indian National Centre for ISDS was set up in January 1986 at the Indian National Scientific Documentation Centre (INSDOC), New Delhi, for identification, registration, creation and maintenance of records of serial publications published in India, as well as for monitoring and promoting the use of International Standard Serial Numbers (ISSN). So far, printed Data Transmittal Sheets (DTS) have been used by this centre to send data of serial publications to be incorporated in the ISDS database at the International Centre (IC). Now the Indian centre has developed a computerised system by which the data of serial publications can be transferred directly onto computer designed DTS. The database so created has also been used to produce ISDS‐India Bulletin which describes the collection of records of serials published in India.
