What is RightsLink and How do I get Started?*

My document title

RightsLink is a licensing service from Copyright Clearance Center, that provides permission for the reproduction and distribution of copyrighted materials in print and electronic formats on behalf of rightsholders who list their titles with us. RightsLink is a service that is accessed directly through a publisher’s website.

Please be aware that the types of licenses offered are established by each individual rightsholder, and will vary. Below are detailed instructions for requesting permission through RightsLink:

Step 1: Please visit the journal article or book chapter at the participating publisher’s website.

Step 2: Click on the “Rights & Permissions” (or similar) link, and you will be directed to the RightsLink order page.

Step 3: Select your permission options from the drop down menus. You can obtain a price quote in advance by using the “quick price” button. You may see a fee or 'Not Available,' if the publisher has not set a fee up front.

Step 4: Follow all prompts to finalize the order, register an account, and check out your order. We will email you with an order confirmation immediately upon completing your order.
