Licensing in content and using this content properly
Is the purchased/licensed library content digitally available to the students?
Do you have an overview of the publishers, content providers and/or library vendors from which you license content? How do you match purchase attitude versus usage?
Do you have a license with the local CMO? How does that work?
Is Open Access and MOOC an issue?
Allrightsonline.com has proven expertise in negotiations between publishers and higher education institutions. We collaborated with collective management societies around the world and the big international STM players providing aggregated databases and subscriptions for books and journals to consortia. We have licensed content in and out by negotiating close to a thousand licenses on behalf of the major publishing companies to 3rd party aggregators, platforms and document delivery providers and large search engines.
In addition to licensing we have been involved in moving from traditional publishing to hybrid publishing within the Creative Common landscape with Open Access opportunities and MOOC study models and dark archives. We have developed many different business models and are experts in the details of the licensing negotiating processes and the opportunities of Higher Education Institutes in realising the most optimum agreements both commercially, legally and financially.
