Offers improved reporting, better account management, and greater convenience for IEEE Open Access customers and authors

We are pleased to announce that IEEE is partnering with Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) to process all Open Access article processing charges (APCs). The RightsLink® Author dashboard is now available to IEEE institutional Open Access customers to make it easier and more convenient for administrators to manage their OA accounts. RightsLink Author is a sophisticated platform that ensures an improved experience for authors, administrators, and institutions, from acceptance to post-publication. It helps facilitate the collection, management, and reporting of publication charges for any journal—full OA, hybrid or subscription.

The RightsLink Author Dashboard allows administrators to:

  •         View funding requests
  •         Approve or deny funding requests
  •         Choose to automatically approve funding requests
  •         Update administrator contact information
  •         Pull transaction reports to keep track of publishing activity
