International Standard Book Number
The International Standard Book
Book
Number (ISBN) is a numeric commercial book identifier which is intended to be unique.[a][b] Publishers purchase ISBNs from an affiliate of the International ISBN Agency.[1] An ISBN is assigned to each separate edition and variation (except reprintings) of a publication. For example, an e-book, a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book will each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is ten digits long if assigned before 2007, and thirteen digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-specific and varies between countries, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN identification format was devised in 1967, based upon the 9-digit Standard Book

Press (or NYU Press) is a university press that is part of New York University.Contents1 History 2 NYU Press Directors 3 Mission 4 Reputation 5 References 6 External linksHistory[edit] NYU Press was founded in 1916 by the then chancellor of NYU, Elmer Ellsworth Brown, in order, he said, to "publish contributions to higher learning by eminent scholars." Arthur Huntington Nason, a professor of English at NYU, served as the Press’s first director from its founding until 1932. No replacement was named following Nason’s retirement, and, due in part to the Great Depression, there was little activity at the Press for several years. In 1952, Filmore Hyde, the first literary editor at The New Yorker, was named director of NYU Press. Under Hyde’s relatively brief tenure, the Press radically redefined itself several times

Digital Object Identifier
In computing, a digital object identifier (DOI) is a persistent identifier or handle used to identify objects uniquely, standardized by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).[1] An implementation of the Handle System,[2][3] DOIs are in wide use mainly to identify academic, professional, and government information, such as journal articles, research reports and data sets, and official publications though they also have been used to identify other types of information resources, such as commercial videos. A DOI aims to be "resolvable", usually to some form of access to the information object to which the DOI refers. This is achieved by binding the DOI to metadata about the object, such as a URL, indicating where the object can be found. Thus, by being actionable and interoperable, a DOI differs from identifiers such as ISBNs and ISRCs which aim only to identify their referents uniquely

Venus (astrology)
Planets in astrology
Planets in astrology
have a meaning different from the modern astronomical understanding of what a planet is. Before the age of telescopes, the night sky was thought to consist of two very similar components: fixed stars, which remained motionless in relation to each other, and "wandering stars" (Ancient Greek: ἀστέρες πλανῆται asteres planetai), which moved relative to the fixed stars over the course of the year. To the Greeks and the other earliest astronomers, this group consisted of the five planets visible to the naked eye and excluded Earth. Although strictly, the term planet applied only to those five objects, the term was latterly broadened, particularly in the Middle Ages, to include the Sun

and the Moon

(sometimes referred to as "Lights"[1]), making a total of seven planets
