GRIN Contracts & Royalties History

GRIN Verlag is one of the largest providers of academic texts in German-speaking countries. Since the founding in 1998 we have not only expanded our services and distribution networks. In order to meet the needs of the eBook / book market and our authors, we have also renewed the publishing contract several times.

For instance since 2007 print books enrich the wide range of academic GRIN texts. Since the contract of 27.01.2015 we offer our authors even higher royalties.

On this page, you can download all your contracts as PDF files and find out about your royalties calculation.

Please note: The time of the upload, not the date of publication, is decisive for the contract. So it may be that you have accepted different contracts for your texts.

If you are not sure which contract is valid for your individual texts, please contact our support at info@grin.com or Tel: +49 (0)89-550559-0.

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.

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.

*If you link your texts with a partner code, you can receive 5% extra on every text sold via this link. More information about the affiliate program here.
