Dear lists,

just a hint to a blog posting on Open Access Journals from the 
discipline of Sociology and their hesitation to adopt open licenses. I 
used data from the Directory of Open Access Journals to compare OA 
journals from all disciplines and Sociology journals and found out that 
sociological journals tend not to use the open Creative Commons licenses 
(CC By, CC By SA).


The data used is available via Zenodo, you'll find the DOI in the 
posting mentioned.
