Revenue model

Next to discounts on publishing fees, there is just one important reason to publish with VWE. As we believe the authors need to be credited at a much fairer rate, 25% will go back on every purchased item.  Think every downloadable item, every single bought chapter, article or book. Or every podcast or other rated item.

This means every publisher is likely to promote his/her publication – just as we commit on our side.
