LONDON – October 10, 2017 – Data systems integration and knowledge engineering experts Ixxus today announced that scholarly publisher Emerald Publishing and world-renowned educational foundation International Baccalaureate (IB) recently became the two latest organizations to deploy the Ixxus Publishing Platform (IPP) to meet their most challenging digital transformation initiatives.

By providing a suite of authoring, assembling, enrichment, discovery, reuse and delivery capabilities, the IPP empowers digital transformation by streamlining production workflows, accelerating new product assembly and maximizing the value of every asset.

The IB selected the IPP to coordinate the production of multi-lingual educational materials for the global community of IB educators. The scalable platform enables more effective management of content iterations and delivery across different languages and geographies from one central platform. The IPP also enables IB to achieve dynamic assemblies of granular XML content, another important feature for the IB team.

“The ability to provide multilingual content is critical for us to support IB World Schools in the delivery of the four IB programmes,” said Robert Bolick, ‎Head of Multilingual Publishing Group at International Baccalaureate. “Our staff will be able to navigate easily within the Ixxus platform to create and enrich materials that meet our world-class educational standards.”
Emerald Publishing selected the IPP to manage the full lifecycle of scholarly journal content from editorial through online dissemination, which will be integrated with ScholarOne Manuscripts to ingest and manage journal submissions.

“The Ixxus Publishing Platform will provide one central platform where our editorial teams can search, discover, assemble and leverage content,” explained Ernst Kallus, Technology & Programme Director at Emerald Publishing. “Plus, the ability to create granular relationships between content types will enable us to see and navigate links between articles, authors and institutions—getting us closer to our content than ever before.”

“We are delighted to partner with IB and Emerald Publishing and work with their talented teams to customize solutions to support their strategies and operations,” said Jonathan Brett-Harris, Managing Director, Ixxus. “Participating in our customers’ digital transformation journeys continues to inspire and drive innovation within our own organization.”

Ixxus recently released several additional customer-driven platform enhancements for content reuse and lifecycle management, including an optional module that empowers organizations to track and manage content development automatically using a kanban-based dashboard. This unique module provides a simple and efficient way to dynamically define workflows of content production pipelines, and obtain a big-picture view of the development status of each project.

To learn more about the IPP and how it can accelerate your digital transformation, please visit our booth (Hall 4.2, Stand E18) at the upcoming Frankfurt Book Fair or contact sales@ixxus.com.

DANVERS, Mass., October 2, 2017 – RightsDirect, a subsidiary of Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), today announced they are partnering with Meteo Inc., a leading provider of Japanese medical information. Using RightFind® and RightsLink® offerings available through CCC and RightsDirect, Meteo will expand global sales of its articles and help increase the company’s brand awareness for content aggregation to the worldwide market.

With the new arrangement, over one million medical articles and citations in Meteo’s Medical Online subscription are integrated into RightFind, a content workflow solution offering secure, cloud-based access to content, as part of its repository. Additionally, rights to Meteo’s content are added to the Republication License Service, available through Copyright.com, the most comprehensive source for clearing broad republication permissions.

“Our partnership with Meteo not only enriches RightFind’s content repository and provides rights to articles through RightsLink for our users, but aligns with CCC’s mission to generate new revenue opportunities for rightsholders in Japan and around the world,” said Tracey Armstrong, CEO, CCC. “We look forward to building this relationship and growing the content and rights access for our users who work tirelessly to move pharmaceutical research forward. This arrangement also demonstrates CCC’s further commitment to the Japanese market by enabling seamless access to more than one million medical articles in the Japanese language for RightFind end users.”

RightFind streamlines access to STM research databases, literature, corporate repositories and personal files, while at the same time reducing the cost of managing and hosting these information resources. The solution integrates seamlessly with CCC’s Annual Copyright License to make copyright-compliant collaboration easier for users.

“We are very pleased to make a partnership with CCC/RightsDirect. This partnership opens up an opportunity for us and Japanese rightsholders to access the global market through CCC/RightsDirect’s trusted and global channel,” said Mr. Yuji Tahara, CEO, Meteo Inc. “It also solves our common customer challenges: to provide and manage both Japanese and English articles in a simple, easy and copyright-compliant way.”

Meteo content in RightFind is available to users now, with Japanese content rights coming to Republication License Service later this month.

(CCC), a global leader in content management, copyright licensing, discovery, and delivery solutions, announces that the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) now manages its Article Publishing Charges (APCs) for its eight active journals through CCC’s RightsLink® for Open Access.

DANVERS, Mass., May 23, 2017 – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a global leader in content management, copyright licensing, discovery and delivery solutions, today announced enhancements to RightFind® XML for Mining, a cloud-based solution enabling users to quickly identify and download a corpus of full-text XML articles from more than 50 multiple publishers through a single source.

May 3, 2017 – Danvers, Mass.Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a global leader in content management, copyright licensing, discovery, and delivery solutions, recently brought together international delegates from publishing organizations, rights and licensing freelancers, and medical communications agencies for a series of three roundtable meetings at the Institute of Directors in London. The seventh annual RightsLink® Roundtable covered new concepts and plans for updating and evolving the transactional workflow behind the RightsLink platform.

During the roundtables, publisher attendees received important product roadmap updates about order workflow, self-service tools, project-based ordering and reporting, and benchmarking. The roundtables also included working sessions to review and provide feedback on republication, commercial and academic types of use, as well as adaptation rights.

The order workflow was further reviewed with CCC’s leading Republication License Service (RLS) in mind. Permissions acquisition experts provided valuable insight and guidance about order workflow, requirements for enhancements to the platform, and opportunities to integrate project management tools into their internal workflows.

During the third roundtable in the series, medical communications agencies provided valuable insight into their challenges in clearing permissions, the need for clearer, broader, and new types of rights to address the needs of their customers, and the future direction of the medical communications landscape.

“This series of RightsLink and RLS roundtables has been incredibly valuable in validating CCC’s planned enhancements for evolving the RightsLink and RLS platforms,” said Darren Gillgrass, CCC’s Director, Rightsholder Products and Services. “There is a strong willingness and desire from all stakeholders to simplify the process of clearing permissions, integrating with financial systems, and using project management and reporting tools.”

CCC will continue the discussion at a joint meeting of publisher and medical communications agencies planned for the end of May 2017.
