De Gruyter Partners with Copyright Clearance Center to Automate Permissions Requests Using RightsLink®

December 11, 2014

De Gruyter announced today that it is to partner with Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a global licensing and content solutions organization, and has implemented CCC’s RightsLink®, a technology solution that allows visitors to the De Gruyter website to license journal content quickly and easily for republishing or reuse.

RightsLink enables publishers to provide immediate online permissions to licensees, eliminate costs associated with manual permission transactions and allows permissions staff to focus on high-value transactions. Each implementation is configured to support the publisher’s unique business and pricing rules and offers reporting tools that help publishers analyze their permissions business and identify areas of growth.

“RightsLink has been making it easy for users to secure permission directly from publishers’ websites for over 15 years,” said Miles McNamee, CCC Vice President, Licensing and Business Development. “For De Gruyter, RightsLink provides a best-in-class capability, creating efficiencies by automating micro-transactions and delivering valuable analytics.”

“Reprint permissions are an important element of our service offering to authors, researchers and the academic community at large,” said Carsten Buhr, Managing Director, De Gruyter. “The cooperation with CCC’s RightsLink gives us a more efficient way to manage these transactions.”
