isbnThe National ISBN Agency of the Slovak Republic is responsible for assigning ISBNs to publishers based in Slovakia, irrespective of the language of the publication or the intended market for the book.

An ISBN is an International Standard Book Number. Up until the end of 2006 it was a 10 digit number, but from 1 January 2007 all ISBN numbers are now 13 digits long. An ISBN is a product number, used by publishers, booksellers and libraries for ordering, listing and stock control purposes. It enables them to identify a particular publisher and allows the publisher to identify a specific edition of a specific title in a specific format within their output.
