The provision of bibliographic metadata by publishers is an important and time-consuming task for publishers. As a first step, this study measures the impact of the provision of this metadata on actual sales of print books. To isolate the actual impact of the provision of this data from other factors, the impact is measured on sub-groups of similar publishers and similar authors. The analysis is then pushed a bit further by measuring the timing of the provision of the metadata on sales of ebooks.
