De Gruyter Expands Use of Copyright Clearance Center’s RightsLink Author Workflow Platform to Manage its Read and Publish Deals

Sep 12, 2019

Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a provider of solutions for advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces its expanded partnership with De Gruyter, the independent publisher, for RightsLink Author, CCC’s solution for managing open access and related publication charges. De Gruyter will be using RightsLink to manage its Read and Publish deals with a variety of consortia.

De Gruyter is also adding 300 more journals on RightsLink Author. These join the open access journals in Poland which were launched on the RightsLink Author platform last year. 

Read and Publish is an agreement that incorporates elements of a traditional subscription purchase and open access to scholarly articles. De Gruyter has agreements that cover OA publishing with consortia in Europe including the UKB (Netherlands), Bibsam (Sweden), Jisc (UK) and the recently signed Read and Publish agreement with the Iowa State University Library, the first of its kind for De Gruyter in North America.

RightsLink Author offers publishers of all sizes immediate access to the sophisticated software infrastructure and staff expertise needed to simplify the collection and management of publication charges. A powerful cloud-based solution used by leading global publishers and their authors around the world, RightsLink Author has become the de facto standard for the increasingly data-driven scholarly publishing industry.

RightsLink Author also streamlines and automates Open Access funding requests, enabling all stakeholders – publishers, institutions, and funders – to easily coordinate an intuitive author-centric experience with dashboards and detailed reporting for all parties.
