Though I can offer no guidance...

Here is one source of information on barcodes for serial publishers along
with ISSN information: the National Serials Data
Program at the Library of Congress (see web page):  Look under "Related Web
Resources" for SISAC (barcodes furnished by publishers)  material

or contact


160 Fifth Avenue
New York, NY 10010
Telephone: 212.929.1393
Telefax: 212.989.7542

For a brief explanation, try
  which also has some links to more extensive information.

Good luck.
