ISSNs are different for print and electronic versions. In the publishing world the medium matters (which is why ISBNs for hard- and paperback editions of books are different, for example). See http://issn.org/2-22638-ISSN-and-electronic-publications.php for more details.

Having multiple ISSNs for the "same" journal is a pain, of course, so now we have ISSN-Ls, which aim to collect all the different ISSNs for a journal, see http://issn.org/2-22637-What-is-an-ISSN-L.php

The http://issn.org website has more on these matters.

Regards

Rod
