In 2014, Cambridge Scholars Publishing introduced a new and improved royalty structure that aimed to provide fairer and more beneficial payments for our authors and editors. At Cambridge Scholars, we put our authors at the centre of everything we do, and as such we have been paying out to our authors from the very first sale of their books under the new royalty scheme. It has been a little over a year since the implementation of this initiative, and we wanted to take this opportunity to inform our authors and readers that the new structure has been a thorough success.
We are delighted to have paid out a significant amount in royalties so far, rightly rewarding our authors and editors for the hard work that goes into publishing their manuscripts. Not only do we pay royalties on copies from the first sale onwards, but, as more books are sold, so the amount we pay out increases. This sliding scale has provided a more equitable and rewarding system for our authors, which we were very happy to implement. Since the introduction of the new royalty structure, we have seen a marked increase in the number of monograph proposals from both new and returning authors.
Together with our growing international reach in the promotion and distribution of our titles across the globe, this has resulted in establishing valuable links with new authors and reaffirming our pre-existing partnerships. We always welcome proposals for new titles, whether from first-time authors or established scholars, and offer an author-based approach which sees your work published efficiently and promoted widely. For more information, see our guidance on Publishing Your Work.
