  2. word anywhere in the title that changes the meaning or scope of the publication
  3. name of the issuing body, included in the title, has changed
  4. new series begins with numbering scheme the same (e.g. vol. 1, no. 1; new series vol. 1, no. 1)
    • change in the main entry (1xx field):
    • name of corporate body (110) changes
