Pubget offers search, retrieval and browse capabilities for content. Its solutions make research more efficient by simplifying the process of finding, managing, and analyzing information. Pubget served more than 5 million researchers and 500 research centers in 2011.  

“Blending Pubget’s current and future offerings with CCC’s broad portfolio of licensing products will provide clients with a complete professional information solution,” said Tracey Armstrong, CEO, CCC. “We’re thrilled to welcome Pubget’s team to CCC and look forward to working together to quickly create market-driven solutions that meet the needs of those who produce content and those who use it.”

“Part of our mission at Pubget is to make access to information seamless. CCC has been making copyright licensing seamless for researchers for decades,” said founder Ramy Arnaout. “We need to work directly with publishers to build this business and CCC has done this while also extending the value of content spend for users. We are all excited about what the future holds with this combination.”
