Ellen CollinsWith government policy-makers and private funding agencies in the US, UK and Europe mandating greater public access to published scientific research, Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a not-for-profit organization and leading provider of licensing and content solutions, recently announced it endorses the Research Information Network’s call for cooperation among funders, universities, and publishers.

To learn more about the report, which urges stakeholders to “work together to ensure that progress … is as smooth as possible toward creating the systems and processes that enable the payment of ‘Open Access’ article processing charges (APCs), while meeting the costs of publication,” CCC’s Chris Kenneally spoke with Ellen Collins, RIN research officer.

“I think that’s what really came out of our work is that both publishers and institutions want something that is sufficiently standardized that it allows them all to collect the same kinds of information, but which also allows them to tailor it to their specific requirements,” Collins said.
