Research Solutions Subsidiary Reprints Desk Introduces Copyright Re-Use Rights Information into ‘Article Galaxy’ Content Access and Management Solution
ENCINO, CA, September 9, 2015 — Research Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: RSSS), a pioneer in providing on-demand access to scientific, technical and medical (STM) information for life science companies, academic institutions, and other research-intensive organizations, announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Reprints Desk, Inc., has incorporated multiple new copyright re-use rights features into Article Galaxy—the world’s preeminent content access and management platform for scholarly research. These new features provide Reprints Desk’s growing, global customer base with a robust yet granular rights management solution that is fully integrated across scholarly content discovery, requesting and delivery workflows.
Article Galaxy’s rights management capabilities now include the ability to ingest and maintain rights that customers have acquired via direct publisher contracts, Open Access rights with granular distinction for the multitude of Creative Commons licenses that exist, and optimal integration capabilities for third-party copyright management tools from RROs and other suppliers. These capabilities enable rights information to be taken into consideration in the content acquisition workflow, which is a key step in ensuring copyright compliance. Re-use rights information can also be made available to end users within preferred research discovery tools, from multiple full-text content requesting locations such as the document delivery order form in Article Galaxy, and across various locations within content delivery and access workflows.
Corporations, academic institutions, and government organizations around the world rely on Reprints Desk and its online platform Article Galaxy for legal access to full-text scientific, technical and medical (STM) content when subscription access does not yet exist. Article Galaxy provides one-stop shopping and lowest cost acquisition of full-text journal articles from nearly any publisher without requiring the use of credit cards for each transaction. Founded by Peter Derycz, also the founder of Infotrieve, Reprints Desk has ranked #1 overall and in each category in a document delivery vendor survey of buyers conducted by Outsell since the company’s inception.
