We would like to inform you that you as authors and editors can apply for royalties from the German Verwertungsgesellschaft Wort (VG Wort). This is quite attractive but will only be possible if you exactly apply as described in the   VG Wort Information for authors. The editors have developed a schema of subdivisions in items for the VG Wort (deviating from the citable items) that follows the complex regulations of VG Wort, ensures a maximum of overall royalties and their fair assignment to persons proportional to their contributions:   BIOTA-Books VG-Wort Items  Please do not deviate from this schema when registering your contributions with VG Wort because otherwise you will threaten the royalty payment to you and to others.
