[...] For over a decade, we have been using the BIC classification code, which was used by many – mostly UK based – publishers. However, the BIC classification was deprecated in February 2024, and is succeeded by the Thema classification. Thema aims to be a globally applicable classification. It is a flexible standard that allows several groups to retain their unique cultural voice while still presenting a unified subject hierarchy that rationalizes book classification.
