Leading Publisher 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 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JWa and JWb) will be participating in CCC’s Republication Service with over 1,600 journals and 100,000 books enrolled. John Wiley & Sons is a global provider of knowledge and knowledge-enabled services that improve outcomes in research, professional practice, and education.

The Republication Service is a one-stop digital marketplace to acquire and grant 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. Using the service, rights acquisition professionals can quickly secure print and digital permissions from hundreds of participating rightsholders, avoid high costs of one-off negotiations, and decrease time to market.

Rights and Permissions departments can manage their republication licensing business more efficiently, earning new revenue by automating permissions and freeing up staff to focus on more strategic projects and maintain control over how content is used through amenable rules and pricing.

“We’re pleased to offer comprehensive republication rights through CCC,” said Kris Kliemann, Vice President and Director of Global Rights, Wiley. “The flexibility of this automated solution lets us manage our content and help serve market needs better, reach new customers, and reduce a manual burden on staff. We’re especially pleased to have designed our offering to allow for a broader grant of rights, enabling requestors to acquire the rights they need in today’s multi-format, global publishing environment.”
