Timely and accurate delivery of book data to the supply chain is essential for achieving the best in sales and marketing of books. Since 2009 RSC has been supplying this information to the book industry using the ONIX format.
In June 2011, Book Industry Communication (BIC) (the book industry’s independent supply-chain organisation) awarded RSC with its BIC Basic Accreditation Award. This recognises RSC as a publisher committed to the consistent delivery of high-quality data at least four months in advance of publication. The additional “digital tick” means RSC is delivering eBook data too.
For distributors, booksellers, readers, librarians and, of course authors, this award indicates that RSC books are not only visible and available, but also of exceptional high quality.
