The Creative Commons Attribution Licence implicitly allows text-mining
(even if not expressly referred to in the legal text)


"You are free:

to Remix — to adapt the work
to make commercial use of the work"

This is what I assume most of us here on the Open Science mailing list
would recommend for academic journal publications.
