Copyright Clearance Center partners with Frankfurter Buchmesse 2018 to highlight the ideas changing the publishing world

CCC is a Premium Partner of Frankfurter Buchmesse

Copyright Clearance Center (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, has once again partnered with Frankfurter Buchmesse (10-14 October 2018). This year at the fair, CCC will help shine a spotlight on the market pressures driving the publishing industry, including big data, open access, research, technological innovation and copyright.

“The Frankfurt Book Fair is known for hosting some of the most thought-provoking and exciting conversations about the world of publishing and this year is no different,” said Michael Healy, Executive Director, International Relations, CCC. “We’re thrilled to once again be a key part of discussions around the technology and trends that continue to shape our industry and lead us into the future.”

As part of the partnership, CCC will participate in talks throughout the week, including:

Getting on the Road to Intelligent Content: No Time Like the Present
Wednesday, 10 October, 11:30 – 12:00
Location: Education Stage (Hall 4.2 C 94)
Agile workflows and easy access to targeted, relevant content have obvious benefits for publishers who have long dreamed of repurposing their catalogs for markets around the world. Transforming content to become “intelligent,” however, is no easy task. In this presentation, Carl Robinson, Head of Consulting, Ixxus, and Renee Swank, Senior Director, Sales, Ixxus, will propose a pragmatic, sensible approach to making the most of technologies without significant upfront investment.

Publisher Voices Raised For Copyright
Wednesday, 10 October, 14:30 – 15:00
Location: Academic & Business Information Stage (Hall 4.2 N 101)
A conversation between Michael Healy, Executive Director, International Relations, CCC, and Michiel Kolman, President of the International Publishers Association, will address some of the publishing industry’s most pressing questions, including: What are publishers doing to ensure their voices are being heard in Europe, Asia, North America and elsewhere? Who is helping publishers to defend their business and creative interests? How can you make certain your voice gets heard?

Open Access Monographs
Wednesday, 10 October, 15:30 – 16:00
Location: Education Stage (Hall 4.2 C 94)
Open Access is transforming scholarly journal publishing, yet the looming size of the journal ecosystem has thrown into deep shadow an equally remarkable transformation in scholarly books. This panel discussion featuring Brian O’Leary, Executive Director, Book Industry Study Group, Carl Robinson, Head of Consulting, Ixxus and David Worlock, Publishing Analyst and Co-Chair of Outsell’s Leadership Programs, will discuss the viability, models and the unique needs of OA books compared to OA journals.

Get Smart About “Plan S”
Thursday, 11 October, 09:00 – 09:30
Location: Academic & Business Information Stage (Hall 4.2 N 101)
“Plan S” was announced just weeks ago and now everyone in scholarly publishing will talk about it at Frankfurt Book Fair. An initiative of 11 European national research funding organisations, “Plan S” puts pressure on Open Access publishing business models by capping article fees, ending embargoes and withdrawing support for “hybrid” OA journals. A panel of publishing leaders and expert analysts offers insights to help prepare for “Plan S” and get smart about the next wave of change in Open Access publishing, featuring Tim Britton, Managing Director, Open Research Group at Springer Nature, and others.
