Macquarie Uni study on rights sales: survey open
Macquarie University is running a research project examining the international rights sales and export of Australian books over the last decade. Academics David Throsby, Paul Crosby and Jan Zwar are conducting the research in collaboration with book industry representatives.
The university study is now collecting data on the extent and nature of demand for contemporary Australian books, the changing nature of deals, and factors contributing to success in global markets, to inform strategies for sustaining international interest and increasing opportunities for Australian publishers and writers in the future.
Agents, publishers and self-published authors who have sold rights to Australian books in 2008-2018 or exported Australian books directly in 2018 are eligible to fill out the survey, until 15 December 2019.
