ACS Publications to join Copyright Clearance Center’s RightFind® XML for mining solution

(10 February 2017, Danvers, Mass.)  Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), which creates global licensing and content solutions that make copyright work, announces that the Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world’s largest scientific society, is participating in RightFind® XML for Mining, CCC’s cloud-based solution for obtaining content and rights for commercial text mining.

XML for Mining empowers organizations using text mining to glean important insights from vast amounts of Scientific, Technical, and Medical (STM) content, enabling publishers to offer life science companies controlled access to full-text articles in native XML format for import into their preferred text mining software.

With XML for Mining, customers make discoveries and connections available only in full text by providing XML-formatted subscribed content and enabling discovery and purchase of articles that fall outside company subscriptions, offering the most complete article collection for text mining.

“ACS publishes some of the highest quality and highest impact research in the world,” said Lauren Tulloch, Senior Director, Corporate Products and Services, CCC. “ACS’s premium chemistry research was one of the top requests from our life science customers and significantly enhances the value of the solution for a wide range of research-and-development organizations.”

“Given recent advances in text and data mining technologies, ACS is proud to partner with CCC on its XML for Mining service, expanding the accessibility and utility of ACS research articles,” said Jonathan Morgan, Director of Digital Strategy, ACS Publications. “Each year, readers access ACS articles nearly 100 million times, ensuring a high degree of visibility and recognition for authors that publish in titles including Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS), Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, and Organic Letters. This relationship will provide even greater visibility for the leading research published in these 50 peer-reviewed journals.”

XML for Mining is built on CCC’s RightFind® platform, which helps customers access, share and manage content anytime, anywhere, while respecting copyright. Colleagues can use a single platform to connect instantly to full-text articles from subscriptions, Open Access channels, local holdings, and document delivery.

Using RightFind XML for Mining, commercial life science users identify and download collections of full-text XML articles from thousands of peer-reviewed journals produced by 50 STM publishers. All content in RightFind XML for Mining is pre-authorized for use in commercial text mining projects for internal purposes.
