Create and define the characteristics of new titles based on title templates, so you can save time.
Manage the intellectual property of your authors the smart way
Title families’ enable users to combine different version types and formats of the same intellectual property. Planning an audio book or e-variant to follow a book that has already been published or managing parallel versions can be done in a few clicks.
Using title templates, you can save time.
Using this app, (standardized) components of a work can be planned and managed to become several types of products. Why will this create significant savings in terms of time and costs?
Key features and benefits
Plan & manage components of a ‘work’ (= intellectual property) in a smart way: components of a work, each one enriched with data, will make it easier to create and sell various types of products & format
Create structures (i.e., components of works): print and digital titles, contributions, chapters, audio & video files, ...
Enter metadata, add contributors or authors, and manage contracts for individual components; texts, catchwords, links, publication dates, and open access information can be handled for each component
Create hierarchical orders of components; components can be elements of other components
Get access & modify data in a quick way: several process-oriented views
Approval process for individual components (status information; notifications)
Export information & decide on depth of hierarchical structures to be included in export file
Arrange and manage content elements of intellectual property the smart way
Think and start planning in ‘works’
If you start your planning phase in titles or products, you’ll be restricted in creating various types of digital products at a later point in time, and managing these formats will become more time-consuming, as information needs to be added and modified manually.
In most cases, it is better to manage your authors’ intellectual property (IP) in works that will later be products or parts of products, but in many forms: print and digital titles, contributions, chapters, audio and video files for podcasts and promotional activities on platforms – essentially, any type of structured content you like, but all based on the same IP stored in your system.
A box in a box in a box ... (hierarchies of) components of works
The IP you manage is structured in components. Using this app, you can record metadata, add contributors or authors, and manage contracts for these components. Beyond that, texts, catchwords, links, publication dates, and open access information can be handled for each component.
Different views for keeping a clear overview from various aspects
To ensure that works can be managed at a very granular level, if required, components can be put in a hierarchical order, and they can be (smaller) components of (larger) ones.
With the Work Component Manager app, keeping a clear overview of these various elements that can be part of other elements is ensured by offering several process-oriented views which can be switched.
Planning view / overall view
Using this view, you can see all planned components at a glance, including essential metadata associated with them. It is easy to add new components, to sort them and to modify the hierarchical placements, and to (temporarily) exclude a component from being part of a work.
