In order to overcome the problems of library catalogs, IFLA and other international organizations created new systems and models. As a result, the catalogs are moving towards exploiting user-oriented approaches. Therefore in 1998 functional requirements for bibliographic records (FRBR) is created. By using conceptual models users can receive the best responses in shorter time, and the Combination of library catalogs with ontologies became possible.  FRBR created for cataloging of monographs and it do not fit well with changing nature of serials.

From 2011 the members of harmonization panel between RDA, ISBD and ISSN rules agreed that the application of FRBR to serials should be investigated again. Further to discussions, it appeared that the FRBR object-oriented model (FRBRoo) could be a possible and promising solution.

FRBRoo is a reformulation of FRBR as an extension of the CIDOC CRM. FRBRoo appeared to provide useful classes and properties for modeling serials. but FRBRoo deals with serials at a general level and does not include the specific details required for describing serials. Therefore At the end of 2012, the ISSN International centre and Bibliotheque Nationale de France agreed to establish a working group in order to develop an extension of FRBRoo, which is devoted to serials and continuing resources in general. And version 1.0 of PRESSoo model published in june 2014.

At first PRESSoo wasn't regarded as an IFLA standard, as it was developed outside IFLA and had not been through a validation process conducted by an IFLA section. But on august 2015 IFLA Cataloguing Section formed a working group to the maintenance and reviewing of the PRESSoo. And now PRESSoo is an IFLA standard. And Because of its benefits, it needs to be further studied.

But There are a few researches that study organizing persian serials because a few number of libraries compeletly organize their serials. But it should be noted that Serials have the newest and the most important researches in any field of study. Therefore, this kind of  materials are very important for libraries and organizations. And they must have the best and newest organizing models.

the aims of this study is the feasibility of implementing the PRESSoo model in organizing Persian periodicals. this article is a survey study. The population of this study is 70 serials of Information Science and Knowledge in Persian language, and all of them will be checked. First properties of Persian serials will be identified, and by using a checklist based on PRESSoo model, that properties will be matched with the PRESSoo classes and properties. And then compatibility of this serials with PRESSoo model will be identified.
