ROYALTY

Payment of royalties to authors is only made for books in the following publishing categories:

1. Academic Imprint

2. Popular Scholarly Writings

3. Monograph

4. University Textbooks

5. School Textbooks

Royalty Rate and Payment

Royalty rate is calculated based on the nett sales given by the following formula:

15% x nett sales (for sales of up to 1,000 copies)
20% x nett sales (for sales of 1,001 copies and above)

 

Printed book:

Nett sales = (retail price – discount average – delivery cost) x number of copies sold

Electronic book:

Nett sales = nett sales received from electronic book aggregator

Payment of royalty will be issued one (1) year after the book is published, and after the royalty amount reaches RM100.00 for local author or USD50.00 for international author. If the amount of royalty has not reached the stated value, the amount will be carried over to the following year. Author will be notified of the royalty amount through given email and mailing addresses on a yearly basis until the seventh year after the book is published. Throughout this period, author/editor is responsible to notify the University (through Penerbit USM) if there are changes regarding email and mailing addresses.

Royalty Distribution

Royalty distribution depends on the number of authors, authors agreement on distribution rate and type of book (edited books/authored books).

1. Edited books/volume

· Academic Editors: 25% royalty (the same share OR as agreed with fellow editors)

· Contributors: 75% royalty (distributed based on number of chapters in the book)

2. Authored books/volume (written by one or more author):

· Equal rates for all authors

· Different rates as agreed among authors

Editors/Authors Responsibility

1. Informing Penerbit USM regarding the agreed royalty distribution rate between fellow editors/authors

2. Updating latest contact details (postal address, telephone number, email address and a copy of bank account statement/book)

3. Fill in the Payment Information Form (for non-USM staff)

Penerbit USM is not responsible for any delay or error in the royalty payment due to negligence of editor/author.
