Thanks Mike and Ross,

Unfortunately Taylor and Francis are not going to go for any form of CC

The texts in this issues will be made available for 6 months and then
revert to T&Fs normal terms and conditions. What I want to do is to allow
text mining of the papers for at least that 6 month period and potentially
in perpetuity. Hence, I want/need some clause that specifically allows
text mining.
