Description of fields


No fields are mandatory but fill in as many fields as possible.

  • name: publisher name, especially if article title has a dab ("Awesome Fiction (publisher)")
  • image: An image of the company logo; make sure it is fair use if uploading. Do not use a thumbnail or include a caption, but include the file name within square brackets as usual and specify the image size in pixels (px) — [[File:Example.png|25px]] produces , the file Example.png 25 pixels wide. Make sure the image is more than 25 pixels wide, the example image is 100px.
  • parent: If a subsidiary, include the parent company.
  • status: Active or defunct; if defunct, give the final year it was in business in brackets.
  • traded_as: The stock exchange(s) and stock ticker symbol(s) of publicly traded companies, using stock ticker templates. Information about the company's status as a component of a major index can also be added. If there is more than one entry, use {{ubl}} to format the entries. A list of available stock ticker symbol templates is available at Category:Ticker symbol templates.
    Examples: {{NYSE|DLB}} OR {{ubl|{{NASDAQ|MSFT}}|{{SEHK|4338}}|[[Dow Jones Industrial Average]] component|[[NASDAQ-100]] component|[[S&P 500]] component}}
  • founded: Year the company was started, if known. Use the template {{Start date}}, as in {{Start date|YEAR OF FOUNDING}}
  • founder: Name of the founder(s); wikilink if possible.
  • country: Include the country where the publisher is based. Do not use flag icons, as this places an unnecessary emphasis on nationality; see MOS:FLAG for a detailed rationale.
  • headquarters: City where the headquarters of the publisher are located (do not use the headquarters of the parent company, that will be specified on the parent company's page).
  • distribution: The distribution of the publisher, where its books are sold. Use regional if local distribution only, national if distribution is to an entire country, international if distribution is to multiple countries, and worldwide if it distributes books to anywhere on Earth.
  • publications: to indicate the types of publications, such as books, magazines or scientific journals.
  • topics:Specify non-fiction topics, such as medicine, science, social sciences, psychology; the level of detail depends on the breadth covered by the publisher.
  • genre: If the publisher publishes fiction, specify the genre.
  • imprints: If the company has a small number of imprints, list them. Otherwise, list them in the body text with a heading of ==Imprints== and link to it using a within-page link - [[#Imprints|Many]] produces Many and will automatically link to the imprints section heading.
  • url: Specify the official website. Use {{URL}}.
