Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a not-for-profit organization and
leading provider of licensing solutions, was named one of "10 to Watch"
in Outsell's first Open
Access Market Report.
CCC provides solutions
to help publishers manage variable Open Access models through its RightsLink®
platform, which supports unique pricing rules, licenses and messaging
for Open Access journals to encourage compliance with funding agency
requirements. It was the only company named in the repor that functions
as an intermediary for collection of article processing charges (APCs)
between publishers, authors and institutions.
Using RightsLink, an easy-to-use licensing solution, publishers can
offer permissions at the point-of-content, whether on a website, through
a mobile application or in the hands of a third-party aggregator.
"CCC is already entrenched in the STM ecosystem with RightsLink, which,
in postpublication, can support the permissions documentation process,
reducing friction for third parties who want to reuse content," said
Laura Ricci, Senior Market Analyst, Outsell. "Perhaps most important
from a business standpoint, RightsLink and CCC can monitor use, reuse,
and uptake data so that new powers to vary pricing can be matched by the
ability to monitor the market's reaction."
"Today publishers are testing different publishing models such as Green,
Gold, and hybrid to meet the growing demand for Open Access content,"
said Roy Kaufman, CCC Managing Director of New Ventures. "Open Access is
not a one-size-fits-all solution and, with our years of experience, CCC
is uniquely positioned to help publishers answer complex questions about
rights as they seek to balance evolution with viability."
For 30 years CCC has been creating rights licensing solutions to help
rightsholders optimize royalties for content, extending their reach into
global corporate and academic markets and providing tools to manage
their permissions business more efficiently.
