Information for Authors

We want to raise the bar for legal publishers by setting high standards for our publications – both in content and form. We like the printed book and find that a real book is offset-printed and bound (hardcover). This is relatively (not ridiculously) expensive, and gives the reader a much better product/experience that matches the content. In addition we offer a unique business model that is very lucrative for successful authors... Click here to learn more ...

Information for Booksellers

It is important for us to have good relations of cooperation with booksellers around the globe. Therefore, we offer favourable terms, especially to the booksellers that carry our books on the shelves. We are in the process of establishing an international network of bookstores to better serve readers of our books... Click here to learn more ...

General information

Information for Authors

Ex Tuto Publishing was founded in 2005 on the idea that the author (of course) retains the rights to his work. This implies that authors – in contrast to most publishing contracts – are free to choose another publisher for future editions of the same book.

The author receives all profits from the book sales; i.e. all revenue minus production cost, handling costs etc. See calculations below. The publisher is entitled to sell the books produced under the agreement and obliged to pay royalties in accordance with the principles elaborated below.

The number of free author’s copies is negotiated individually; and we usually allow more free copies to the author than traditional publishers. Our business model entails that we can produce an even larger number copies (e.g. for marketing purposes) to researchers, institutions, associations, businesses, lawyers etc. who are willing to subsidize production costs.

We are always looking for new interesting projects and publications. Contact our Managing Director Jan Trzaskowski ( for more information, calculations etc. He is also happy to elaborate on how we secure the high quality of our products.

How to do the math

The author’s share of the revenue is the retail price minus VAT, a handling fee (DKK 45 + 5 %), marketing contribution (5 %), and bookseller’s discount (20 %). Thus when production costs are covered, the author’s royalty is the retail price minus 30 % and DKK 45. Break-even is often at less than 200 copies sold.

Royalties are not paid for copies used for marketing purposes, including for review/inspection, or bookseller’s bonus copies (they receive 1 extra copy for each 10 copies in the same order).

An Example: ‘A 608 page book produced in 1,000 copies’



Retail Price (excluding VAT)



Bookseller’s discount (20 %)



Marketing contribution (5 %)



Handling fee (DKK 45 + 5 %)



Author’s share per copy sold




Production costs:



Break-even at 52.000/305=170 copies


@ 250 copies sold



@ 500 copies sold



@ 750 copies sold



@ 1,000 copies sold

Information for Booksellers

Booksellers receive a discount of 20 % and we charge actual shipping costs. If you buy at least 10 books in the same order, we pay for shipping and books may be returned within 2 years. For every 10 copies of the same book, you receive an additional copy. For international orders (outside Denmark) a handling fee of DKK 100 excluding VAT is added per order. We are open for commission agreements when our books are displayed in a book store.

Our retail prices are not binding, but our commitment to our authors is. Therefore we cannot provide further discount; however, booksellers are free to sell our books at a higher price than the suggested retail price.

About Ex Tuto Academic

Together with other Danish law publishers, we have developed guidelines for peer-review of monographs within legal research. According to the guidelines, the peer-reviewer must assess whether the monograph meets scientific requirements, including requirements for novelty, independent method applications, and documentation. The guidelines have been prepared in cooperation with the Academic Committee of ‘the Danish Bibliometric Research Indicator’ (‘den bibliometriske forskningsindikator’, BFI).

For academic publications, the publisher must appoint a peer-reviewer with research skills at PhD level or above. The selection is done according to professional criteria and publishers seek as far as possible to find peer-reviewers in the subject area that is external from the publisher and the institution. Both national and international peer-reviewers can be used and the peer-reviewer may request to remain anonymous.
