The need for high quality metadata is more important than ever.

Our Publisher Health Check report will provide an overview on the quality of the data Nielsen Book holds for your titles. We will provide you with statistics around your data completeness and make recommendations on how you can improve your title listings ensuring all your metadata elements are complete and up-to-date.

According to Nielsen Book’s latest research titles meeting the BIC basic requirements enjoy double the average sales of books that don’t meet that standard.


We are offering IPG Members a 15% discount off our Publisher Health Check, simply sign up before 31 December 2021.

Silver Health Check

For publishers, distributors or sales reps with fewer than 500 title records.

Gold Health Check

For publishers, distributors or sales reps with between 500 and 25,000 title records.

Both reports will feed back on the elements you have listed with us and will provide guidance on how to improve your listings. The feedback will be based on your full list of titles. For more information please email: sales.book@nielseniq.com



Books with five descriptive data elements on average experience sales three times higher than titles with no descriptive elements.

Share enriched book blurb, including descriptions, table of contents, reviews, promotional information and author biographies, to thousands of book buyers.

Our Nielsen BookData Enhanced Service enables you to add, where appropriate, these descriptive elements and our Editorial Team will manage your information, ensuring accuracy, consistency, timeliness and completeness of your records, giving your titles the competitive edge when viewed by book-buyers around the world.

The Enhanced Service is an annual subscription based on the number of titles you publish and a minimum charge applies.
