What Is An ISNI?

The International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI) uniquely identifies Public Identities across multiple fields of creative activity. An ISNI removes ambiguity between people (authors, contributors, or fictional characters) and company or organization names.

ISNI adds the clarification needed for better organizing your content, and also adds simplicity to royalty and rights management.



The ISNI, or International Standard Name Identifier, is one of the latest ISO standards to affect the publishing industry. By assigning ISNIs to contributor names, you are unambiguously identifying authors, publishers, editors, even fictional characters and creating relationships among them.
