Use PLSclear to make and manage permission requests to republish content

PLSclear is a permissions management tool for requesting and granting permission to reuse published content. Designed and operated by Publishers’ Licensing Services, PLSclear powers our three permissions services designed to streamline the permissions processes for both requestors and publishers.

For those seeking permission, PLSclear powers PermissionsRequest: a free service to help secure permission to reuse copyright content quickly and easily.

For publishers, PLSclear powers two services, tailored to individual needs, which help publishers manage permissions more efficiently:

  • PermissionsAssist is a service for publishers who would like outsource the administration of their permissions to PLS.
  • PermissionsDirect is for publishers who would like to continue to manage their permissions in-house using PLSclear to streamline processes including automated licensing and payment/credit control.
