Codelists Issue 22

19 July 2013

Layout of codelists

This document contains ONIX for Books codelists Issue 22, for ONIX 2.0, 2.1 and 3.0, arranged in a single table for reference and printing.

Codelists are revised quarterly. This document does not differentiate between codelists for ONIX 3.0 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 Specification for the appropriate release.

The complete set of code list entries is also available in comma-separated, tab-separated and XML formats, as well as in multiple HTML files, and as XSD, RNG or DTD files integrated into the relevant schemas.

Codelist headers

These are laid out with three columns:

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

Codelist entries

These are laid out in five columns:

  1. Code value used in ONIX message data
  2. Code label, often used for display of coded data
  3. Notes on the meaning and usage of the code value
  4. The number of the Codelist Issue in which the entry was first added. Zero for all codes which were added before Issue 1
  5. The number of the Codelist Issue in which the description or notes were most recently revised, and blank for entries that have never needed revision

Color coding

Text in blue highlights revised descriptions or notes in this issue. Text in red highlights new entries in this Issue.

List 1Notification or update type code0
01Early notificationUse for a complete record issued earlier than approximately six months before publication.0
02Advance 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
03Notification confirmed on publicationUse 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.011
04Update (partial)In ONIX 3.0 only, 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.011
05DeleteUse 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

Note ‘special sales’ are sales where terms and conditions are different from normal trade sales, when for example products that are normally sold on a sale-or-return basis are sold on firm-sale terms, where a particular product is tailored for a specific retail outlet (often termed a ‘premium’ product), or where other specific conditions or qualiifications apply. Further details of the modified terms and conditions should be given in <PriceTypeDescription>.015

31Freight-pass-through RRP excluding taxIn the US, books are sometimes supplied on ‘freight-pass-through’ terms, where a price that is different from the RRP is used as the basis for calculating the supplier’s charge to a reseller. To make it clear when such terms are being invoked, code 31 is used instead of code 01 to indicate the RRP. Code 32 is used for the ‘billing price’.3

List 63Intermediary supplier availability1
List 64Publishing status2
00UnspecifiedStatus 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
01CancelledThe product was announced, and subsequently abandoned; the <PublicationDate> element must not be sent.2
02ForthcomingNot yet published, must be accompanied by expected date in <PublicationDate>.2
03Postponed indefinitelyThe 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
04ActiveThe 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
05No longer our productOwnership 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
06Out of stock indefinitelyThe product was active, but is now inactive in the sense that (a) the publisher cannot fulfill 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.29
07Out of printThe 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
08InactiveThe 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
09UnknownThe sender of the ONIX record does not know the current publishing status.2
10RemainderedThe 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
11Withdrawn from saleWithdrawn, typically for legal reasons or to avoid giving offence.9
12RecalledRecalled for reasons of consumer safety. Deprecated, use code 15 instead.915
15RecalledRecalled for reasons of consumer safety.15
16Temporarily withdrawn from saleWithdrawn temporarily, typically for quality or technical reasons. In ONIX 3.0, must be accompanied by expected availability date coded ‘22’ within the <PublishingDate> composite, except in exceptional circumstances where no date is known.15
17Permanently withdrawn from saleWithdrawn permanently from the market. Effectively synonymous with 'Out of print' (code 07), but specific to downloadable and online digital products (where no ‘stock’ would remain in the supply chain).21

10No reading system accessibility options disabled (except)No accessibility features offered by the reading system, device or reading software (including but not limited to choice of text size or typeface, choice of text or background color, text-to-speech) are disabled, overridden or otherwise unusable with the product EXCEPT – in ONIX 3 messages only – those specifically noted as subject to restriction or prohibition in <EpubUsageConstraint>. Note that provision of any significant part of the textual content as images (ie as pictures of text, rather than as text) inevitably prevents use of these accessibility options.15
11Table of contents navigationTable of contents allows direct (eg hyperlinked) access to all levels of text organization above individual paragraphs (eg to all sections and subsections) and to all tables, figures, illustrations etc. Non-textual items such as illustrations, tables, audio or video content may be directly accessible from the Table of contents, or from a similar List of illustrations, List of tables, etc.15
12Index navigationIndex provides direct (eg hyperlinked) access to uses of the index terms in the document body.15
13Reading orderAll or substantially all textual matter is arranged in a single logical reading order (including text that is visually presented as separate from the main text flow, eg in boxouts, captions, tables, footnotes, endnotes, citations, etc). Non-textual content is also linked from within this logical reading order. (Purely decorative non-text content can be ignored.)15
14Short alternative descriptionsAll or substantially all non-text content has short alternative descriptions, usually provided via alt attributes. Note this applies to normal images (eg photographs, charts and diagrams) and also to any embedded audio, video etc. Audio and video content should include alternative descriptions suitable for hearing-impaired as well as for visually-impaired readers. (Purely decorative non-text content can be ignored, but the accessibility of resources delivered via a network connection rather than as part of the e-publication package must be included.)15
15Full alternative descriptionsAll or substantially all non-text content has full alternative descriptions. Note this applies to normal images (eg photographs, charts and diagrams) and also to any embedded audio, video etc. Audio and video content should include full alternative descriptions (eg audio-described video) and subtitles or closed captions suitable for hearing-impaired as well as for visually-impaired readers. (Purely decorative non-text content can be ignored, but the accessibility of resources delivered via a network connection rather than as part of the e-publication package must be included.)15
16Visualised data also available as non-graphical dataWhere data visualisations are provided (eg graphs and charts), the underlying data is also available in non-graphical (usually tabular, textual) form.15
17Accessible math contentMathematical content such as equations is usable with assistive technology, eg through use of MathML. Semantic MathML is preferred but Presentational MathML is acceptable.15
