Platform Enhancements Help Users Get Information Faster with Simplified Access to Re-Use Rights and Expanded Open Access Coverage

DANVERS, Mass., August 10, 2017Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a global leader in content management, licensing, discovery and delivery solutions, today announced enhancements to RightFind, the leading content workflow solution that provides secure, cloud-based access to scientific, technical and medical (STM) information and other categories of high-value content.

With the new release, CCC focused on target areas of RightFind to better serve customers’ interests, including:

  • Instant document delivery for non-subscribed content, which enables users to view a document within seconds of placing an order—regardless of how many articles are being ordered or how the content is being made available—accelerating content workflow and collaboration.
  • Improved content in context, including the expansion of Altmetric data, giving users the ability to quickly identify the online attention—for example from social media—surrounding articles from their search results.
  • A refreshed interface that displays re-use rights information in a variety of workflows.
  • A new Open Access icon that allows users to quickly identify Open Access content, including the growing base of articles available through CCC.

“We have made numerous updates to RightFind that will help users work faster and smarter,” said Lauren Tulloch, Senior Director, Corporate Products and Services. “With a focus on user-friendly enhancements that inspire collaboration, along with CCC’s expert customer service, we can empower our customers to access more information in less time and with more confidence than ever before.”

CCC’s RightFind includes Open Access content from PubMed, DOAJ, BioMed Central, American Society for Microbiology and SpringerNature. With this update, granular Open Access coverage soon will expand to content from Taylor and Francis, Karger, American Society for Pharmacology & Experimental Therapeutics and other publishers.

RightFind maximizes 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.
