You are a writer; so the issue of copyright will be an important one to you as it protects your work from copyright infringement. The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is the 10 digit number on the back of a book. This number identifies the publisher and the book title. Booksellers all over the world use this number to order, price and keep track of inventory. An EAN bar code is your ISBN transferred into an OCR scanable image created specifically for your book.

SOS Publication can handle copyright registration and provide an ISBN and the EAN bar code for your book. We ensure your book includes necessary components such as a copyright page which fully complies with international marking guidelines for published books.

SOS Publication has a flat fee of N7,500 per book to provide the ISBN and the EAN bar code on your book. Although a work can be published and sold without ISBN, SOS Publications highly recommends authors secure their work with one.
