In-House Seminar on THEMA at Suhrkamp Verlag

On 5 August 2014, MVB and Newbooks Services jointly conducted the first in-house training course on the new international Subject Classification Scheme THEMA for the renowned publishing house Suhrkamp Verlag in Berlin.

After a comprehensive introduction to the seminar topic, Martin Richard, Marketing Manager and Head of Department Law and Economics at NEWBOOKS Solutions, presented the THEMA Classification Scheme in its full depth and granularity, and shared the most important rules to the subject indexing of publishing content with THEMA Codes with the participants.

At the end of the training day the group practiced with the help of NEWBOOKS staff the practical application of the THEMA Subject Classification Scheme which was tailored to the specific publishing contents of Suhrkamp Verlag. One of the important points raised during the final discussion between the speakers and Suhrkamp editorial staff, sales reps and key account managers was the question of quality management in the indexing of titles according to THEMA, especially with regard to the need for coherence across the entire publishing program in terms of first edition and reprints, or other related products.
