Copyright Clearance Center welcomes you to join us for another Frankfurt Book Fair Town Meeting on Open Access, on Thursday, October 15, from 9 to 11 a.m. in Hall 4.C – Alliance Function Room.

For 2015, CCC is asking what the “Next Wave” of Open Access will bring to publishing – generally, or at your own organization. We have arranged for a rich and varied program, with discussions at 9, 9:30 and 10 a.m. In addition, we will have refreshments.

Full program details are at, and from there, you may also book an appointment with a CCC representative to discuss your licensing and information workflow needs.

Since earlier this year, influential research funders have mandated “open access” publishing practices that are sparking dramatic re-tooling of longstanding business models. When “authors pay,” what should publishers expect to face?

At the Frankfurt Book Fair today, Copyright Clearance Center presented a frank discussion on the “OA” challenge with Robert Kiley of the Wellcome Trust and a panel of leading publishers and analysts. Joining him and CCC’s Chris Kenneally were Ellen Collins of the Research Information Network; Rob Johnson of Research Consulting, and most recently with the University of Nottingham; and Karen Hawkins of IEEE, publisher of many of the world’s leading journals on technology and technical knowledge.

As scholarly and scientific publishers test new business models, the focus particularly is on collection of Article Processing Charges (APCs). Funders require compliance with mandates; authors look for a complete and rewarding user experience; and publishers want efficiency and flexibility. The pace of transformation is accelerating and demand for innovative solutions is mounting. Learn more about Copyright Clearance Center’s RightsLink for Open Access solution.
