See our article in the July 11th edition of Research Information regarding the need for publishers to tackle digital author royalties at http://www.researchinformation.info/news/news_story.php?news_id=982.
Was subsequently published on 30/8 in the Aug-Sep print edition of the magazine, available online at http://content.yudu.com/A1xwt0/RIAUGSEP12/resources/8.htm
Feedback from commercial publishing manager:
Re: ‘Publishers must tackle digital author royalties’ on Research Information. A good article – in particular:
One publisher stated: ‘if you can solve the complexities around aggregating e-book sales for us that would be great, but if you can solve the resulting royalty issues, we’d sign up today’.
I would echo this sentiment. Do get in touch if you develop a solution – my spreadsheet is creaking!
