Funding & Financial Aids

Financing generally occurs through the financial resources of the author’s university or third party funds. Other possibilities for financing are the publisher, the institute / professorship or the author himself.
The university press charges the printing costs as well typesetting costs for the first edition and a lump sum of 30 €.

The number of copies for the first edition is calculated from the sum of the desired author copies and 30 copies for the university press (including the mandatory duplicates for the German National Library).
The printing costs depend on the number of copies for the first edition, the total number of pages, the number of colour pages and the paper quality.

50 % of the revenue goes to the university as a whole and 50 % remain with the university press.
