The Salvation Army’s policy regarding royalties:
For officers: All creative work produced by officers must first be offered for publication to The Salvation Army. If the Army chooses to publish the work, the copyright in and royalties arising from such publication must be assigned to The Salvation Army. If the Army declines to publish the work, the territorial commander – after consulting with the territorial literary or music council – may approve its publication outside of the Army. In such cases active officers will assign all copyright and royalties to The Salvation Army.
For non-officers, Salvation Army employees, and retired officers: The Literary Council will negotiate a royalty agreement, for a percentage of sales after the cost of publishing, with the non-officer author upon acceptance of his/her manuscript.
