How CCC Supports the Scholarly Publishing Community
CCC and industry consulting firm Media Growth Strategies recently undertook a thorough examination of metadata management across the research lifecycle. Drawn from interviews with dozens of industry stakeholders, we created an interactive, visual report that depicts the significant economic and social impact that a fragmented metadata supply chain has on researchers, institutions, funders, and publishers on the journey to Open Access and beyond.
Our dedicated resource page provides insights reflecting how, through partnerships, integrations, and support of cross-stakeholder initiatives, CCC supports OA funding workflows that serve everyone in the community — publishers, institutions, funders, and authors.
To help create transparency and support collaboration within the scientific publishing community, CCC and Outsell, Inc. created a map of the scientific publishing ecosystem, reflecting the perspectives of key stakeholders
