Defining publication metadata

You can enter metadata concerning your publication.

Metadata you can enter for your eBook are the following:

  • eBook Title
  • Author (Last Name, First Name. Multiple authors are separated by semicolons)
  • Publisher (not used in the wholesale distribution system, your login identifies you as a publisher)
  • Imprint (optional)
  • ISBN
  • Language
  • Main Subject
  • Description
  • Review
  • Publishing Date (for reference only)
  • Cover image (by default, the cover image of the eBook is used; but one can used a different cover image in the eBook and in the wholesale distribution system)
  • Demo PRC file (optional, demo files can usually be generated automatically by the wholesale distribution system). This has to be an unencrypted Mobipocket PRC file
  • Suggested retail price and currency (mandatory to deploy to a wholesale distribution system)
  • Territory restriction

Note: Metadata should be filled properly before deploying the publication into a wholesale distribution system.
