New mandates? No problem for The Rockefeller University Press

peter.suber's bookmarks 2013-03-31


"The existing public access policy for our three journals—The Journal of Cell BiologyThe Journal of Experimental Medicine, and The Journal of General Physiology—is fully compliant with new policies from the Research Councils UK (RCUK) and the Wellcome Trust. In addition to mandating public access, the new policies specify licensing terms for reuse of content by third parties, in particular for text and data mining. We question the need for these specific terms, and we have added a statement to our licensing policy stipulating that anyone, including commercial entities, is permitted to mine our published text and data."
