Easy Metadata Management for Publishers

A book without metadata is like a city without street signs. Impossible to find! Metadata has always been important to selling books, but today your book is invisible without it.

Quality Checks & Reports

Role-Based Collaboration

ONIX Distribution

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.

  • ISBNs, UPC codes, and other identifiers
  • Author biographies, affiliations, and contact information

Keeping Up with Standards:

Optimize discoverability and sales through integrated ONIX 3.0 distribution to your industry partners.

Creation, Maintenance, & Distribution of Metadata is Essential for Discoverability

Configurable Title Data Templates:

  • Allows users to capture required metadata early and then continue to refresh as more information becomes available

Intuitive Quality Checks:

  • Ensures the required data is populated
  • 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

Metadata Inheritance Must Be Easy to Manage for Fractional Content that Is Frequently Reused in New Works.

  • The knkPublishing data structure provides an accessible view of all the different derivatives of the original work and reduces repetitive manual entry of metadata
  • Any saleable product can be defined (paragraph, chapters or articles for example)
  • 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
