Integrated automated publication fee processing solutions
With the increase in Open Access publishing models,publishers may not be equipped to manage the new revenue stream of Article Publication Charges (APCs) from Authors submitting manuscripts.In addition, institutional details and funder information, as well as discounts, need to be considered when managing, estimating and collecting APCs. To help publishers efficiently process publication fees, Editorial Manager® integrates with APC collection tools such as Copyright Clearance Center’s (CCC) RightsLink® for Scientific Communications and Aptara’s SciPris.
These solutions allow publishers to quickly and easily manage APC collection in-workflow during submission and peer review within Editorial Manager and ProduXion Manager. In addition, institutional details and funder information, as well as unique business rules such as member discounts, need to be considered when managing, estimating and collecting APCs. Editorial Manager leverages industry standards such as Ringgold institutional IDs and Crossref’s Funder Registry IDs while collecting key metadata from Authors which allows RightsLink and SciPris to produce accurate price estimates. These integrations with EM/PM streamline the Author workflow and automate the transactional processes for publishers, truly creating an end-to-end workflow solution.
