Import / Export Content via ONIX Files


Apart from querying metadata via DOI look-up, you can also import metadata for your publication based on ONIX files.


HowTo upload content via ONIX:


Open the dropdown menu of your →My BookMetaHub and go to your →Dashboard.


On the Dashboard, you can chose to:

  • Upload ONIX XML metadata

You can upload ONIX XMLs via the Dashboard. Currently supported ONIX formats are 3.0, and ONIX 2.1. Please note that readout for ONIX 3.0 might lead to better results for your metadata. This is due to the fact that the later format is more standardized, which in return leads to a higher chance for a richer set of imported data.


  • As a last step for both please select your →Publisher Workspace for all requested records to be imported to.


After your request is processed, we will send you a notification by e-mail.

For further output formats such as ONIX, MARC, JSON, or KBART you can send data from the BookMetaHub directly to Thoth via our new integration (or import the ONIX files from Thoth to BMH). Learn more about the Thoth integration here or get in touch to learn more!
