Price:  £40.00(Inc. 20% VAT)(£33.33 Exc. VAT)
Version:  

This author agreement should be used where a publisher pays a royalty to an author in exchange for a licence to publish.


This template agreement provides for the grant of a licence by the author to the publisher in exchange for an undertaking to pay royalties given by the publisher.

Many if not most authors agreements provide for authors to be remunerated by the payment of a royalty. The level of the royalty may vary depending upon the form of exploitation in question. For instance, an author may demand a higher royalty for electronic forms of exploitation. Royalties are usually calculated by reference to a book's cover price or by reference to the publisher's net receipts. Where royalties are paid, authors will usually ask for an advance on those royalties.
