PLS® Permissions is a suite of services designed to help publishers streamline their permissions process.
The suite comprises:
PermissionsDirect - which enables publishers to manage their own permissions requests in one online account.
PermissionsAssist, a service by which publishers outsource the entire management of their permissions to PLS, and
PermissionsRequest, a free service that enables editors and authors seeking to reuse published content to apply for permission to do so quickly and easily.
