QUOSA will offer new integration options with CCC's RightSphere rights advisory tool to its business and academic customers interested in streamlining copyright compliant access to scientific literature. The new integration options include more levels of service that make it easier than ever for QUOSA users to manage, share, archive full-text articles and other content in a copyright-compliant manner without any interruption to their workflow.
