runs the rights workflows for leading publishers

Maximise the profitability of your rights

Manage all your contacts, submissions, contracts, permissions and payments in a single system


Extremely flexible and highly configurable, the Biblio suite supports academic and trade publishers with a comprehensive end-to-end solution for managing submissions of interest, advances, contracts, subsidiary rights income and third-party permissions for any type of physical or digital product.

Maximise rights revenue with automated payment tracking, chasing and notification of expired rights, so that your rights can be renewed or resold without losing any time. Identify unused rights and aid future sales opportunities with a centralised and coordinated system for recording submissions of interest and rights sales. Strengthen your negotiation position and increase profitability, using centralised and easily reportable rights information.
