Manage, monitor, and monetise your permissions with PLS PermissionsDirect

PLS PermissionsDirect is designed for publishers that would like to manage their own permission requests using our intuitive online permissions tool, PLSclear. PermissionsDirect is perfect for publishers who already have a permissions team in place but would like to streamline current procedures and save staff time and frustration. 

PermissionsDirect gives your permissions team the right tools to manage permissions more efficiently by: 

  • Managing incoming permissions requests in the online Request Manager inbox
  • Automating or semi-automating responses to requests with two automation programmes:
    • Free of Charge - author requests, reusing content in dissertation
    • Fee Payable Licensing - automatically issue quotes based on your own pricing policies
  • Real-time reporting on the status of requests received
  • Full credit control provided by PLS for all requests

There is no subscription or up front cost to use the service, instead a 12% handling fee is payable on paid-for licences only.
