Copyright & Royalties


Authors receive royalty payments on all sales once a year, according to the provisions of the Agreement.

With most university and trade presses, authors receive royalties after amortization of costs—an arrangement that often results in no royalties.With New Academia, authors make 10% royalties on wholesale price, and royalties start accruing from the very first sale.

Authors may purchase their books at 30% discount, and 40% for orders of 50 copies or more. But royalties do not apply to author discount purchases.
