Possibly not, but there is still a crusty old world of academic
publications with traditional reference styles out there, and an ISSN
will make it much more straightforward to cite RFCs in peer-reviewed
publications. +1 that it's a no-brainer.
Hi - I'm really not trying to be a contrarian, just trying to
sort through the actual issues here. I don't think I've ever seen
a reference that included an ISSN. I've also never seen one
used as a subject header (index term) in cataloging. The only
time I've personally seen them used is as *descriptive* information
in a catalog (library catalog, publisher's catalog, etc.). I'm
sure someone will be happy to dig up a counterexample but
I do think they're pretty unusual. Really, what are the odds
that someone knows the ISSN but not the title or the author or
the publisher or ... ?
I agree with Melinda here. I can't remember ever seeing anything
like an ISBN or an ISSN used as a citation in an academic paper.
