Second Extract Permissions Service

The Second Extract Permissions Service is our time-saving solution that allows customers to buy additional permissions on a pay-as-you-go basis.

"We have found the CLA Second Extract Permission Service very easy to use. The ‘traffic light’ system clearly shows whether a second extract is available and it is useful to be able to check the price before committing to the purchase.” - Sharon Cocker, Learning Resources Section, University Library, University of Sheffield 

 

What is it?

Currently, with a CLA Higher Education Licence a Higher Education Institution (HEI) can copy a limited extract from a published work – the ‘first extract’ – e.g. a single chapter from a book or 10%.

With the Second Extract Permissions Service, we offer HEIs the option to buy permission to copy and use an additional amount – a ‘second extract’ – e.g. another chapter from the book or another 10%.

Our solution takes away the pains of negotiating with costly third-party agents or  dealing with the publisher directly, which can be a time-consuming process with uncertain results.

We’ve worked with copyright owners to be able to offer this streamlined service, helping HEIs to use additional content as and when they need it.

 

How does it work?

Any licensed HEI can register and set up an account, entirely free of charge. Once your account is set up, you can start buying permissions to copy Second Extracts straight away!

Second Extract Permissions are priced per page, per student by each publisher, and a flat service fee of £4 is applied for each transaction.
