When you accept our contract, you declare that you have the exclusive copyright and right of use for the files you submitted. That means, you created the work on your own and did not use any unnamed sources. It also includes not having given the exclusive rights of publication to another company.
Please only upload your term papers and theses once they have been officially graded. Of course, this does not apply to scientific essays or specialized books that are not subject to academic evaluation. In order to avoid legal problems, please make sure you have correctly cited all copyright protected sources, including both direct and indirect quotations, pictures and charts. If a picture serves nothing but decorative purposes, for example on the title page, we have to ask you to remove it. Also keep in mind that simply naming the works cited in a bibliography at the end of the paper is not sufficient.
If your paper contains internal information on a specific company, please ask for a written declaration of agreement before submitting the manuscript. Alternatively, you can choose to remove or anonymize the information in question.
If your work contains interviews, please either ask your interviewees for whether they agree to the publication or remove the interviews from your manuscript.
For the publication of lesson plans or internship reports, you have to remove all details regarding the name and place of the scholarly institution as well as all names of teachers and students mentioned in the text.
Important: Prospective teachers who, during their training, compose internal reports and lesson plans, may not be allowed to publish these. This may differ due to your country and region, so it is recommended to check with your supervisor or the respective education authority first.
If you have questions, please contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The publisher's margin is the net retail price minus trade discounts, production and shipping costs.
The retail price can be set by each shop unless there is a law for fixed book prices, in which case the price set by the publisher has to be used.
If the author chooses the one-time-payment, the percentaged participation on the sales does not apply. In this case, the author receives a one-time payment of 10 € (respectively 10 GBP, 10 CHF or 10 USD, according to the country).
For sales in the context of a granting of a license to other publishers in the publishing group, the author receives a ten percent royalty of the publisher's margin. These royalties are paid yearly due to accounting processes of other publishers.
Yearly royalty payments also apply for subscription models and various rent and download models e.g. of libraries.
