As more researchers embrace text- and data-mining methodologies, publishers must provide flexible and workable terms and utilities as they surmount legal and technological barriers to the new practices.

Last November, CRL presented a webinar on text mining and its implications for librarians. On Wednesday, July 17, CRL will host a webinar to update members on the latest industry developments, featuring speakers from the journal publishing world, including:

  • Eefke Smit, Director of Standards and Technology, STM, “Content Mining:A Short Introduction to Practices and Policies”
  • Carol Anne Meyer, Business Development and Marketing, CrossRef, “Prospect by CrossRef”
  • Mark Seeley, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, Elsevier, “Enabling TDM: Contract Forms”

This webinar is presented in cooperation with STM (International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers) and ALPSP (Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers).

In May 2013, STM and ALPSP held a forum in London for journal publishers, summarizing current issues in text and data mining. Presentations are now available.
