American Chemical Society uses open access platform

The American Chemical Society (ACS) has implemented licensing company Copyright Clearing Centre’s (CCC) next generation RightsLink for open access platform.

RightsLink will be used to manage article processing charges for open access publications.

ACS’s use of RightsLink for open access will “streamline” the APC author payment workflow with easy-to-use tools, according to CCC.

Brandon Nordin vice president of sales, marketing and web strategy at ACS Publications, said: “The Open Access publishing model requires publishers to adopt and adapt to a new and evolving set of transactional requirements.”

“The rapid growth of open access has introduced new complexities into scholarly and scientific publishing,” said Bill Neuman, vice president of products at CCC.

American Chemical Society represents professionals in the field of chemistry and sciences that involve chemistry.
