CCC’s scholarly communications workflow solution makes it easy for publishers to service authors, collect publication charges and manage transformative agreements -

Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, has announced that its RightsLink for Scientific Communications (RLSC), trusted by 30 leading publishers representing 2,400 journals, is managing Open Access (OA) agreements with more than 300 institutions.

RLSC helps publishers manage author transactions and supports a variety of transformative agreements, including Read and Publish, Publish and Read, and Pure OA with a ‘touch-free’ workflow that does not require author involvement. This not only facilitates alignment with mandates such as Plan S, but also improves transparency, reduces friction for the author, and lowers costs for all parties. With support for pre-paid funder and publisher accounts, RightsLink claims to be the only solution that enables Read and Publish agreements between publishers and institutions without requiring author involvement.

As RightsLink is used by many of the world’s top publishers, CCC is able to bring a broad and advanced set of capabilities to all publishers, funders, institutions and authors using the RightsLink platform.

CCC is a trusted intermediary and recognised market leader uniquely positioned to facilitate dialog among key stakeholders in the author, publisher, institution, funding and vendor communities. CCC also encourages engagement across boundaries through an ongoing series of roundtables, panel events, webinars, podcasts and blogs. CCC is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), the International Association of STM Publishers (STM), and a Sustaining Member of the Society of Scholarly Publishing (SSP).

CCC will present a virtual Town Hall on June 18, 2020 to review the latest developments in Transformative Agreements and foster a discussion on how innovation is answering the Open Access challenge.
