American Association for the Advancement of Science Participating in Copyright Clearance Center’s Republication Service

World’s Largest General Scientific Society Signs On to Enhanced Solution Which Streamlines Process of Negotiating Republication Rights

Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a global licensing and content solutions organization, has announced that the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will be participating in CCC’s Republication Service.

The Republication Service is a one-stop digital marketplace to acquire and give republication rights, simplifying the process of negotiating those rights while helping secure permission to republish content from the world’s most sought-after works in a single transaction. Rights acquisition professionals using the service can quickly secure print and digital permissions from hundreds of participating rightsholders, avoid high costs of one-off negotiations, and decrease time to market.

“We can now manage our republication licensing business more efficiently by maintaining control over how our content is used through amenable rules and pricing,” said Beth Rosner, Publisher, AAAS. “We look forward to earning new revenue by automating permissions and freeing up staff to focus on more strategic projects.”
