Authors Coalition Survey

NWU is a member organization of the Authors Coalition of America (ACA). ACA distributes non-author specific royalties collected by various reprographic rights organizations around the world, to member organizations in the US. It also distributes author specific royalties whenever possible. These distributions are used by each member organization to advance the strengthening of copyright protections and educational work. It makes it possible to attend various conferences and helped pay for the NWU e-book webinar. It does not go to pay office rent, salaries, stipends or other organizational infrastructure. The amount of the distributions are determined by the number of surveys we submit. Please take and submit this survey. It is very important to our union.

Please check the categories in which you qualify as a published author. (Please do not check more than one genre for one piece of work, i.e., the same book cannot qualify you as both a nonfiction author and a textbook author.) For purposes of this survey, a “published” work means that (1) The work is reasonably capable of being photocopied abroad and is not self-published, or (2) If the work is self-published, that there have been no fewer than 1,000 copies sold, the work is commercially distributed outside the U.S., it is reasonably capable of being photocopied abroad.

NWU thanks you for taking the Authors Coalition survey.
