Santa Monica, Calif., and Waltham, Mass., December 10, 2009– Reprints Desk, Inc., and QUOSA, Inc., today announced that Cubist Pharmaceuticals has become the first shared customer to activate integration between Reprints Desk’s STM Document Delivery service with QUOSA’s Virtual Library, which facilitates copyright-compliant article archiving and scientific literature re-use. The integrated solution features integration with Rightsphere, the rights advisory and management tool from Copyright Clearance Center (CCC), which already integrates independently with both Reprints Desk and QUOSA.
“The integration of QUOSA’s powerful solution for archiving and sharing scientific journal articles with Reprints Desk’s ultra-rapid document delivery service was a logical collaboration for delivering the efficiency and compliance benefits we’ve been seeking to enhance our eLiterature services,” said A. Amyas Huston, Senior Manager of Medical Communications at Cubist. “With QUOSA already deployed and Reprints Desk delivery not requiring any platform fees or any IT information technology involvement from Cubist, the implementation within our workflow processes was fast and seamless.”
Lexington MA-based Cubist Pharmaceuticals has been a QUOSA customer and a Reprints Desk customer since 2007. QUOSA serves a large and rapidly growing subscriber-base at leading pharmaceutical, biotechnology and other life-science companies, with solutions for efficiently managing and monitoring scientific literature.
