ONIX for Books

Code lists Issue 13

23 March 2011

Layout of code lists

This document contains ONIX for Books code lists Issue 13, for ONIX 2.0, 2.1 and 3.0, arranged in a single table for reference and printing.

Code lists are now being revised more frequently. In order to reduce the effort required to maintain the documentation, this document is available in HTML rather than as previously in PDF, and does not differentiate between codelists for ONIX 3 and those for earlier releases. For details of which code list to use with which data element in each version of ONIX, please consult the main Format Specification for the appropriate release.

The complete set of code list entries is also available in comma-separated, tab-separated and XML formats.

Code list headers

These are laid out with three columns:

  1. Code list number
  2. List name
  3. The number of the code list Issue in which the list was added. Zero for all lists which were added before Issue 1, and for new lists for which values have not yet been assigned.

Code list entries

These are laid out in four columns:

  1. Code value
  2. Code description
  3. Notes on the meaning and usage of the code value
  4. The number of the code list Issue in which the value was added or the description and notes were last revised. Zero for all lists which were added before Issue 1, except where there has been a change in status in a later Issue.

Color coding

Text in blue highlights revised notes. Text in red highlights new codes.

Code lists

Value Description Notes
1 Notification or update type code 0
01 Early notification Use for a complete record issued earlier than approximately six months before publication. 0
02 Advance notification (confirmed) Use for a complete record issued to confirm advance information approximately six months before publication; or for a complete record issued after that date and before information has been confirmed from the book-in-hand. 0
03 Notification confirmed on publication Use for a complete record issued to confirm advance information at or just before actual publication date; or for a complete record issued at any later date. 0
04 Update (partial) In ONIX 3.0, use when sending a ‘block update’ record. In previous ONIX releases, ONIX updating has generally been by complete record replacement using code 03, and code 04 is not used. 0
05 Delete Use when sending an instruction to delete a record which was previously issued. Note that a Delete instruction should NOT be used when a product is cancelled, put out of print, or otherwise withdrawn from sale: this should be handled as a change of Publishing status, leaving the receiver to decide whether to retain or delete the record. A Delete instruction is only used when there is a particular reason to withdraw a record completely, eg because it was issued in error. 0
08 Notice of sale Notice of sale of a product, from one publisher to another: sent by the publisher disposing of the product 2

64 Publishing status 2
00 Unspecified Status is not specified (as distinct from unknown): the default if the <PublishingStatus> element is not sent. Also to be used in applications where the element is considered mandatory, but the sender of the ONIX message chooses not to pass on status information. 2
01 Cancelled The product was announced, and subsequently abandoned; the <PublicationDate> element must not be sent. 2
02 Forthcoming Not yet published, must be accompanied by expected date in <PublicationDate>. 2
03 Postponed indefinitely The product was announced, and subsequently postponed with no expected publication date; the <Publication Date> element (ONIX 2.1), or its equivalent as a date composite in ONIX 3.0, must not be sent. 2
04 Active The product was published, and is still active in the sense that the publisher will accept orders for it, though it may or may not be immediately available, for which see <SupplyDetail>. 2
05 No longer our product Ownership of the product has been transferred to another publisher (with details of acquiring publisher if possible in PR.19 (ONIX 2.1) OR P.19 (ONIX 3.0)). 2
06 Out of stock indefinitely The product was active, but is now inactive in the sense that (a) the publisher cannot fulfil orders for it, though stock may still be available elsewhere in the supply chain, and (b) there are no current plans to bring it back into stock. Use this code for ‘reprint under consideration’. Code 06 does not specifically imply that returns are or are not still accepted. 2
07 Out of print The product was active, but is now permanently inactive in the sense that (a) the publisher will not accept orders for it, though stock may still be available elsewhere in the supply chain, and (b) the product will not be made available again under the same ISBN. Code 07 normally implies that the publisher will not accept returns beyond a specified date. 2
08 Inactive The product was active, but is now permanently or indefinitely inactive in the sense that the publisher will not accept orders for it, though stock may still be available elsewhere in the supply chain. Code 08 covers both of codes 06 and 07, and may be used where the distinction between those values is either unnecessary or meaningless. 2
09 Unknown The sender of the ONIX record does not know the current publishing status. 2
10 Remaindered The product is no longer available from the current publisher, under the current ISBN, at the current price. It may be available to be traded through another channel. A Publishing Status code 10 'Remaindered' usually but not always means that the publisher has decided to sell off excess inventory of the book. Copies of books that are remaindered are often made available in the supply chain at a reduced price. However, such remainders are often sold under a product identifier that differs from the ISBN on the full-priced copy of the book. A Publishing Status code 10 'Remaindered' on a given product record may or may not be followed by a Publishing Status code 06 'Out of Stock Indefinitely' or 07 'Out of Print': the practise varies from one publisher to another. Some publishers may revert to a Publishing Status code 04 “Active” if a desired inventory level on the product in question has subsequently been reached. No change in rights should ever be inferred from this (or any other) Publishing Status code value. 3
