From manuscript submission to publication and beyond, the virtues of a seamless workflow are many.
In a recent webinar, Copyright Clearance Center welcomed Josh Dahl of ScholarOne, the highly-regarded peer-review and online submission platform for scholarly publishers from Thomson Reuters, to discuss best practices for comprehensive information gathering and workflow management.
“When it comes to Open Access business models, publishers must manage relationships and responsibilities with authors, editors, and technology vendors,” Dahl explained. Dahl focused particularly on how scholarly publishers can enable frictionless article submission when authors choose to pay Article Processing Charges.
In fact, new business models in publishing have triggered new complexities for everyone. Publishers want efficiency and flexibility; authors require a smooth and effortless process; funders require proof of compliance with their OA policies. RightsLink® for Open Access from CCC streamlines the entire author fee transaction by seamlessly integrating with editorial and production workflows.
