  • Flags missing metadata and provides easy access to add information
  • Highlights one or multiple records to complete
  • Provides workflow control, reminders, ONIX distribution status

Collaborative Workflow:

  • Editorial, Marketing, and Production can all contribute to evergreen metadata through constant enrichment as a project develops and goes to market

knkPublishing makes Metadata Inheritance easy for fractional content

For content that frequently get reused in new works, metadata management can be a massive headache. We make it simple.

Data Structure

The knkPublishing data structure provides an accessible view of all the different derivatives of the original work and reduces repetitive manual entry of metadata

Product Saleability

Any saleable product can be defined (paragraph, chapters or articles for example)

Metadata Linkage

All downstream activities such as rights and royalties are linked to that project data, and all metadata can be selectively inherited from top to bottom

Ask Yourself:

Are you collecting metadata in spreadsheets or multiple databases? And can you ensure it is accurate?

Do you have a bullet-proof workflow including a failsafe system for reducing errors and labor redundancy?

Is your data transparent to all stake holders who wish to collaborate?

Are you spending too much time distributing ONIX files to multiple distribution partners and unable to account for the results?

Metadata management is an essential component of knkPublishing, the integrated business software solution for publishers.
