Weltwirtschaftliches Archiv = Review of World Economics Chris Blackman 08 May 2003 16:16 UTC

A bit of a confusing situation regarding this title (OCLC #1640929, LCCN

Armed with new CCM, AACR2 2002, and my upgraded understanding of
major/minor changes in title, I happily started to update my old record
for "Weltwirtschaftliches Archiv" rather than create a new record for
"Review of world economics = Weltwirtshaftliches Archiv".  I added a 500
note for this minor change to show that the former English parallel
title is now considered to be the main title (according to CCM 16.2.4.
Minor changes in title proper, Category e. The order of titles changes
when the title is given in more than one language).

I was happy with this until I noticed that the ISSN had changed as well!
Hmmm. This is a first for me at least: where ISSN rules recognized a
change in title that AACR2 did not. I'm wondering now if a new record
really is required in this case or if just editing the 022 on the old
record is required (e.g. 1610-2878 $y 0043-2636). Did the ISSN center
assign a new number because the parallel English title only appeared
later in the publication history (e.g. 245 reads "Weltwirtschaftliches
Archiv" and 246 reads "Vols. for 1972-<1999> have title also in English:
Review of world economics")?

Any insights?
