Open Access 0 comments by

Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a not-for-profit organization and leading provider of licensing and Open Access (OA) solutions, has joined the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), which offers a forum for bringing together the entire Open Access community.

“As traditional and new publishers gather and create standards around Open Access publishing, it’s increasingly important to have organizations like OASPA leading dialogue among publishers, academics, researchers and others”
“As traditional and new publishers gather and create standards around Open Access publishing, it’s increasingly important to have organizations like OASPA leading dialogue among publishers, academics, researchers and others,” said Roy Kaufman, Managing Director, New Ventures, CCC. “We’re honored to be a part of OASPA’s ambitious mission of exchanging information, setting standards, improving the author experience, educating the research community and the public and promoting innovation.”

CCC currently works with many of OASPA’s members on issues such as collecting Article Processing Charges (APCs) and Open Access-aware licensing through its RightsLink® for Open Access solution, which helps reduce costs, increase operational efficiency and improve author experience and satisfaction.

CCC was named one of “10 to Watch” by information industry analyst Outsell in its 2013 Open Access Market Report and recently endorsed the Research Information Network’s call for cooperation among funders, universities and publishers.

CCC has been helping publishers improve the author experience in collecting APCs for over six years and welcomes efforts toward standardization and transparency.

CCC hosts webinars and podcasts on many aspects of Open Access and works with organizations such as the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) on creating standards around Open Access as part of its non-profit mission.
