Info for authors

We hope that you enjoy the experience of publishing with Pickering & Chatto and that there is an opportunity for us to work together in the future. Please see below for information on royalties, purchasing Pickering & Chatto titles and our ongoing marketing efforts.



We pay our royalties annually in October accounting for sales achieved in our preceding financial year which runs July to June.

It is essential that you keep us informed of your correct contact details (full postal address + email address). Changes can be sent either to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or to your current commissioning editor. We regret that we will have to charge an admin charge for any cheque that has to be re-issued because the original has been sent to an old address – unless we have previously been informed.

Our monograph authors and editors may receive royalties on eBook as well as print sales. This comes under the category ‘other revenue’. Revenue from eBooks is increasingly complicated with varying amounts received for short term loans, consortia sales and multi-user access models as well as outright single copy purchase. Because of this we are not able to give a figure on eBook unit sales.

We currently have a minimum payment threshold of £60.00. All royalties are accounted for and paid in £ Pound Sterling.
