CCC creates OA Agreement Intelligence solution
CCC, a provider of Open Access (OA) workflow solutions, is releasing OA Agreement Intelligence, an agreement modeling solution that enables publishers to prepare, build, and analyze their OA data.
The solution lets publishers create and communicate sustainable and transparent agreements with their partners. It combines sophisticated data preprocessing with easy-to-use analysis and export capabilities.
Transparent, flexible, and technology-based solutions are more important than ever, particularly considering the recent White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) guidance to accelerate the availability of articles resulting from federally funded research, according to the vendor.
OA Agreement Intelligence helps publishers achieve scalability, sustainability, and transparency goals for institutional agreements.
Pilot participants cited a range of benefits including time savings associated with manual data clean-up, leveraging automated affiliation enrichment through CCC’s recently acquired Ringgold data, accelerating the creation of agreement offers, adjusting deal parameters in real time to drive customer satisfaction, and gaining strategic insights into historical OA business, according to the company.
“Publishers and institutions have told us that siloed systems, manual processes, and inaccurate data sets are hindering their efforts to efficiently communicate and arrive at mutually beneficial and sustainable agreement terms,” said Tracey Armstrong, president and CEO, CCC. “As new OA business models evolve, data quality and efficient communication of that data are critical for building and maintaining trust.”
OA Agreement Intelligence is part of CCC’s growing OA service suite, including RightsLink for Scientific Communications, the solution that makes it easy for scholarly publishers of all sizes to manage OA institutional agreements and collect publication charges.
