Abstract

This chapter summarizes briefly different forms of journal and book publications. Different types of publications from both groups are defined and a possible assessment is given in the form of a publication pyramid. Types of publications which cannot be collected in the above mentioned groups are summarized under the expression grey literature. At the end of the chapter, different ways of identification of publications such as International Standard Book Number, International Standard Serial Number, Library of Congress Control Number and Digital Object Identifier are introduced.
