Why we should all be using Thema

What is Thema?

Thema is a category scheme based on hierarchical code structures and the BIC classification scheme. It has been developed by EDItEUR who also created ONIX. EDItEUR released their latest version of Thema (Thema 1.4) in April 2020. It has 150 new subject codes and 550 new qualifiers.

Thema has improved the traditional BISAC code by allowing you to add more codes over time and deliver more precise information. Products are easier to find, more relevant and better categorized.
