Each year, TU/e staff members produce a wealth of publications. Mostly in the form of journal articles, but often also as separate publications as textbooks, dissertations, scientific reports, and conference proceedings. It is recommended to have such separate publications officially registered through an ISBN number (International Standard Book Number).

Application for an ISBN

To apply for an ISBN please complete the ISBN application form. Including a copy of the title page is required.


By assigning international registration numbers (ISBN) to publications, these are made easily traceable through both national and international channels. In many catalogues and bibliographies, book titles may be found using the ISBN as search key.
