The Model

How advanced title information benefits the supply chain.

Abstracts and accurate, substantial metadata are essential to successful content discovery. The discovery services that license our content - including ProQuest, EBSCO, Baker & Taylor, Gale, and GOBI Library Solutions - rely on ProtoView for accurate and substantial information about new scholarly works. These discovery services place the ProtoView abstract wherever the title occurs in their public- and librarian-facing resources, thus increasing the chance of the title’s discovery.

The process is simple: Publishers send us their books (print or electronic), which are promptly delivered to our writers, who write the descriptive summary abstracts. Our production staff then add metadata. The completed content is delivered to the discovery services and placed on where it is available to publishers for their own use.

Working with hundreds of publishers each month, ProtoView offers an authoritative, reliable, one-stop resource for detailed, professionally written information about the latest content from the world’s leading academic publishers
