The height, given in centimeters, is given for purposes of shelving, since publications that are very large or very small may require special shelving. If the height includes a fraction, round off to the next whole centimeter (AACR2 2.5D1). If a serial is bound by a publisher, measure the bound volume (AACR2 2.5D1), but do not measure in-house binding. Measure the height according to the way in which the publication will be read, regardless of how it is bound.
