For more resources including product guides, videos, and more, please visit the Institutional Resource Center.


The Agreement Management Module’s Institutional Portal is designed to support your work with RightsLink publishers, enabling you to review and approve APC funding requests, view and edit special billing profiles that reflect the terms of your agreements, communicate policy or next steps to your researchers, and run transaction reports.

To access the Institutional Portal, visit and log in with the credentials you received from CCC. If you encounter difficulty or to request training, email for assistance.

Your colleague will also receive an automatic welcome email from the RightsLink system, but their account will not have Institutional Portal access until the email from our staff is delivered.
