An ISBN (International Standard Book Number) can be given to a publication that qualifies as a book. The physical form of the work can be a printed book, audio-visual or electronic recording. If the work is published in several different formats (e.g. both printed and digital formats), a separate ISBN must be applied for every different format.

You can get an ISBN for your work with the ISBN request form
For other publishers (e.g. author’s editions, publications published by some other body than the University of Turku or a department that belongs to it), ask for the ISBN from the Finnish ISBN Agency. email:
