Welcome to the CCC / RightsDirect Collaboration Portal

Copyright Clearance Center and RightsDirect annual license holders can use this online portal to extend your license coverage to collaborative projects with other licensees. 

What is the Collaboration License?
The Collaboration License is an amendment to your organization's Annual Copyright License and/or Multinational Copyright License. It allows project team members from two licensed organizations who are working on that project together to share articles, research, and other published content with one another for purposes of the collaboration. Learn about the Collaboration License and how to use it in this short video.
