Are there any options for dividends, if I publish my dissertation Open Access?

For all OPEN FAU dissertation publications available in digital-only format there is an indexing & abstracting contract with ProQuest (PQDT). FAU doctoral students are eligible for a royalty from these based on sales and use of their dissertation, provided they contact and set up an account. Royalty rates are currently set at 10% of net income. See here (, Section „ProQuest Dissertations and Theses (PQDT)“.
