List of ISBN Identifier Groups

This is a list of ISBN identifier groups, the second element in 13-digit ISBNs (the first element in 10-digit ISBNs). The identifier is assigned to mark either a publisher's place of business or the language of the books it publishes.

The "original" set of identifiers, assigned prior to the introduction of 13-digit ISBNs and, as such, prior to 978-prefix books, ranges from one to five numerical digits according to the following structure:

0-5, 7
600-649
80-94
950-989
9900-9989
99900-99999

They are assigned in approximate descending order of publishing volume. Because the smaller identifiers have room for fewer publishers and ISBNs, several countries have had more than one identifier assigned to them. On the other hand, several countries (Australia, the United States, Canada, France, Austria, Switzerland...) have no identifier because they fall in the "language groups".

The structure for the identifiers of the 979- prefix and whether it will have language-specific identifiers is not well known, but three identifiers have been assigned (979-10-, to France, 979-11, to Republic of Korea, and 979-12, to Italy). Also, 979-0 has been reserved for the use of International Standard Music Number for sheet music.

Notes

  1. ^ Note that "language" does not mean all books with the identifier are written in that language, only that the geographic area is identified as such; thus, books in Breton are identified as French language books, and books in Navajo are identified as English language books, etc.
  2. ^ In practice, this group is mostly used by some subsidiaries of VDM Publishing with registered addresses in "Beau-Bassin, Mauritius".
