CCC Named One of ‘10 to Watch’

Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a global licensing and content solutions organization and the leading commercial document-delivery provider, was named one of “10 to Watch” in Outsell, Inc.’s “Text and Data Mining: Technologies Under Construction” market report, in which the research and advisory firm took a close look at how scientific research, engineering, and healthcare are deploying text and data mining and what the future holds.

“CCC’s RightFind™ XML for Mining is the first commercial tool of its kind directed at the information industry, coupling content licensing with text mining-ready content,” said Deni Auclair, Outsell’s VP & Lead Analyst for the Scientific, Technical, Medical, and Healthcare information space. “The tool addresses research pain points by aggregating articles in XML, a structured format for mining; normalizing the content; and licensing that content for legal use.”

According to Auclair, CCC’s offering reaches the research market at a critical point in the text and data mining timeline, when researchers are looking for ways to plow through mountains of information. “Although only at the beginning of its evolution, it [RightFind XML for Mining] is leading the way to further innovations, with early participation in the market and filling a critical position between content and technology.”

“RightFind XML for Mining accelerates research and plays a catalytic role in innovation because it eliminates many of the practical challenges involved in the research workflow,” said Babis Marmanis, CTO & Vice President, Engineering and Product Development, CCC. “It allows researchers to focus on the opportunities that lie ahead.”

XML for Mining is built on the RightFind platform, CCC’s unique suite of cloud-based workflow solutions that offer immediate, easy access to a full range of Science, Technical, and Medical (STM) peer-reviewed content.

Researchers can identify and download full-text articles associated with their research, not only from publications to which they subscribe but also from those outside of their subscriptions. They can easily export the newly created corpus in XML format to the text mining tool of their choosing.

XML for Mining is a market-based solution to text mining needs that helps publishers enhance the value of existing subscriptions. Publishers who make their content available through XML for Mining help support the research process and facilitate compliant access to articles by researchers in R&D-heavy companies, a segment of the industry increasingly interested in obtaining the rights to text mine. Publishers also gain access to valuable usage reports to help them make decisions related to licensing and content development strategy.
