Derycz Scientific Subsidiary Launches Content Licensing Service for Scientific Literature to Benefit Medical Marketers and Brand Managers

Scientific Article Collection Service Will Simplify Licensing, Integration and Access for PDF ePrints Used in Online Portals, Physician Detailing and eDetailing, and Websites

May 4, 2010

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Derycz Scientific, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DYSC), the content repurposing company, today announced that its subsidiary Reprints Desk, an award-winning provider of information services and content workflow solutions, has launched ePrints NRx, a new scientific article collection service that simplifies the re-use of PDFs by medical marketers, brand managers and sales professionals.  The service, recently deployed for multiple Reprints Desk customers, provides these professionals with a copyright-compliant "plug and play" type of licensing solution for using multiple articles from multiple content sources in online portals, physician detailing and edetailing, and digital marketing initiatives.

ePrints NRx was conceived after recent collaboration among Reprints Desk, leading scientific, technical, and medical (STM) publishers and two of the world's top-10 pharmaceutical companies.  The collaboration led to the deployment of ePrints within a leading closed-loop marketing (CLM) solution and an online portal for healthcare consumers.  The service is designed to solve common and persistent challenges that have stalled the long-predicted surge in article ePrint usage in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries:

  • Multiple points of contact for licensing
  • Multiple user agreements
  • Multiple invoices
  • Lack of a consistent end-user experience
  • Different licensing terms and conditions
  • Different ePrint hosting technology
  • Unfriendly DRM – plug-ins, Mac incompatibility, etc.
  • Lack of reporting
  • No 3rd-party software or systems integration

Peter Derycz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Derycz Scientific, said: "ePrints NRx is a breakthrough for every medical marketer and brand management professional who has wanted to incorporate a group of scientific article ePrints into their program or campaign, only to run into various licensing, technical and budgeting challenges."

ePrints NRx service components include publisher relationship management and collaboration, annual or transactional licensing, workflow and technical requirements determinations, electronic content delivery or hosting for on-demand PDF downloads, reporting, and integration with third-party sales and marketing software services.
