Hi there. I am John Bond from Riverwinds Consulting and this is Publishing Defined.
Today I am going talking about ONIX in publishing.
ONIX stands for Online Information Exchange. ONIX refers to an XML standard metadata format in publishing. Originally, it allowed book publishers to create and manage a collection of rich metadata about their products, and to exchange it with their commercial and non-commercial partners such as distributors in a coherent and automated manner. According to EDItEUR, ONIX is "an XML-based family of international standards intended to support computer-to-computer communication between parties involved in creating, distributing, licensing or otherwise making available intellectual property in published form, whether physical or digital."
Now called ONIX for Books, it has expanded to include eBooks. ONIX for Books is at release 3.0.
ONIX is used worldwide and is the product of a collaboration with many professionals led by EDItEUR (an international group coordinating development of the standards infrastructure), American Association of Publishers, and the Book Industry Study Group in the US and Book Industry Communication in the UK. EDItEUR is now charged with maintaining ONIX.
A second flavor of ONIX was developed called ONIX for Serials to capture metadata for serials or subscription products. It is a “family of XML formats for communicating information about serial products and subscription information.” There are several sub formats in this area
Finally, is the third standard, ONIX for Publications Licenses. It was created to handle the licenses under which libraries and other institutions use digital resources.
There are several companies that provide ONIX software applications including most notably, Firebrand’s Eloquence on Demand and Klopotek, as well as Book Connect, OnixEdit, OnixSuite, Stison Title Manager and Bibliolive.
All publishing operations, particularly in book and eBook publishing, need rich, formatted metadata and to provide it in industry standard formats with their partners and ONIX is the answer.

A few questions: is the publication self-published? How are you scanning the bar code? I believe Onix is the data in the retail/sales system behind the ISBN. It is not directly related to the bar code, but more to the number. Have you uploaded the information on your ISBN number into the system?'
@John Bond Thank you for responding. My issue is. I have the ISBN and I have converted it into a bar code using some free tools online. But, when I scan the bar code, it doesn't give any results. Is this where ONIX helps?
