BMC and PLoS: All the data is CC-BY. Enjoy!

Connotea Imports 2012-07-31

Summary:

"Great news: our recent Is It Open Data? enquiries received rapid, clear, and positive responses from BMC and PLoS....In summary: research data published by PLoS and BMC, whether embedded in an article or as supplementary information, is available under CC-BY....Although this may seem obvious given the clear CC-BY terms BMC and PLoS apply to articles, the license of supplementary information was not explicit on their websites....Both BMC and PLoS explicitly stated that they support the Panton Principles in theory. Nonetheless, both require attribution for reuse and redistribution, and thus their data reuse and redistribution policies are not compatible with CC-Zero or other public domain licenses at this time...."
