We discovered this ourselves earlier this year (and we did make use of that
record, thanks!), however the "National" edition issue number (not volume
number)- did you notice this as well?

I corresponded with Mr. Samson Wong of AsianWeek in April of this year
when we began a subscription for this title. It appears the publication
is being repackaged for broader circulation across the country, so that
there are two editions, a "national" and local edition. According to Mr.
Wong, "Volume numbers should be different. Vol 3 represents national
edition. Volume 27 is local. The number of each issue should be the same."
The title of the "national" edition appears as: AsianWeek national. I
added a record for this to OCLC (#123913392).
hope this helps!
