As some of you may know, Cengage is in the middle of a chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding. There may be may be many Cengage authors out there like me who have not received royalties in several years and the proposed bankruptcy reorganization lists us as unsecured creditors with a low priority to collect. I am just curious--how does Cengage's bankruptcy affect your decision to publish with them in the future? Given the Cengage publishes mostly textbooks (and less scholarly books, per se), how does a publisher's decision to offer or not offer royalties affect your decisions to publish with them. In the end, I am just curious about the thoughts of others regarding Cengage and the low priority authors receive in terms of compensation in a bankruptcy. I think the Cengage situation raises interesting questions for academic publishing worth discussing. -- David Schultz, Professor Editor, Journal of Public Affairs Education (JPAE) Hamline University Department of Political Science 1536 Hewitt Ave MS B 1805 St. Paul, Minnesota 55104 651.523.2858 (voice) 651.523.3170 (fax) http://davidschultz.efoliomn.com/ http://works.bepress.com/david_schultz/ http://schultzstake.blogspot.com/ Twitter: @ProfDSchultz My latest book: Election Law and Democratic Theory, Ashgate Publishing http://www.ashgate.com/isbn/9780754675433 FacultyRow SuperProfessor, 2012, 2013 -- --
