We are delighted to announce that we have now implemented RightsLink as our new Open Access (OA) payment system for all of our journals.
At Portland Press we are fully committed to the open science agenda and to serving the needs of our authors, readers, librarians and Society members. The Copyright Clearance Center’s RightsLink platform streamlines author fee transactions for Article Publishing Charges (APCs), supporting our mission as a Society-owned publisher, to place the requirements of our community at the heart of everything we do.
By offering an intuitive easy-to-use system, this collaboration will also offer a time-saving benefit for authors minimizing the administrative burden they and their institutions face in making APC payments.
In addition to this, advantages of the new system include:
- Instant APC payments via credit card or invoice request through RightsLink;
- Ability to instantaneously check for and apply relevant discounts (journal subscribers, Biochemical Society members and authors from low-income countries) before making a payment;
- 24x7 customer service in real-time via live chat and phone, or within hours via email.
On the new system Professor Richard Reece, Chair of the Portland Press Board and Trustee of the Biochemical Society, said:
“I am delighted that Portland Press has implemented the RightsLink for Open Access system, allowing us to offer a smoother publication experience for authors publishing Open Access articles, while decreasing the administrative burden for the institutions at which they are based.
We are very pleased to work with a partner like Copyright Clearance Center that understands publishers’ needs and the ecosystem in which we operate to bring the best service for authors and institutions.”
If you have any questions regarding our new system, please do not hesitate to contact the Portland Press editorial team (email@example.com) and we will be happy to help.
