In a recent press release, CCC announced a significant enhancement to its innovative RightsLink for Scientific Communications (RLSC) workflow solution. The new update aims to streamline and optimize the processing of OA agreements within university library consortia, which can now seamlessly process these agreements, making it easier for researchers and institutions to access vital scientific content.

As part of the latest RLSC release, CCC also adopted the European Statistical Advisory Committee (ESAC) Article List, an OA agreement reporting template.

CCC recognizes the importance of simplifying the management of OA agreements. With this enhancement to RLSC, CCC reaffirms its commitment to facilitating access to scholarly content and supporting the community in its pursuit of OA initiatives.

“This new functionality based on the ESAC Article List will foster standardization according to international best practice across the sector,” said Catherine Ferris, Open Scholarship Officer, Irish Research e-Library (IReL). “This is a welcome and needed addition to the infrastructure supporting OA publishing agreements.”
