Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), creating global licensing and content solutions that make copyright work, announces that John Wiley & Sons, Inc. has chosen CCC’s RightsLink® platform to automate the collection of page charges, color charges, and custom cover charges within the author workflow for hundreds of its proprietary and society-published journals.

CCC’s RightsLink for Open Access enables publishers to provide authors with a world-class publishing experience while streamlining their global business. By integrating with commercial and custom manuscript management systems, RightsLink leverages author and manuscript metadata to create a customized payment experience for each author. Payment of any applicable publishing-related charges occurs within authors’ regular workflow – at article submission, acceptance, first proof, or any other publisher-designated points in the process.

In addition to providing service to authors, RightsLink makes it possible for publishers to efficiently manage pricing; apply promotional, member, and/or funder discounts; comply with institutional and funder mandates; and track activity through robust transactional reports.

“Wiley’s integration with the platform in this way illustrates CCC’s ability to serve authors beyond Open Access charges,” said Jennifer Goodrich, Director of Product Management, CCC. “We are so pleased to partner with Wiley in the transformation of their overall author services business.”

“As the world’s leading society publisher, Wiley seeks to provide an outstanding experience for both our journal authors and our publishing partners. This objective is a significant force shaping our technology roadmap,” said Peter Marney, SVP and Chief Product Technology Officer, Wiley. “With the ability to automate the collection of page, color, and custom cover charges, CCC’s RightsLink pairs perfectly with Wiley’s extensive investment in creating a seamless submission-to post-publication journey focused entirely on effectively meeting authors’ needs.”
