This contributor agreement template may be used to document the legal relationship between a contributor (e.g. a contributor to a book, series or periodical) and a publisher. The template contains an assignment (i.e. transfer) of the copyright in the work (as opposed to a licence of copyright). The template assumes that the contributor will be remunerated by way of fee (rather than by way of a royalty). This template contributor agreement is supplied in Word (.doc) format for easy editing. It is 9 pages long including the cover page.
