Elsevier allows experimental text mining of its journals at UBC

In an agreement with the University of British Columbia (UBC)¬†Elsevier recently agreed to allow researchers there to text-mine Elsevier content for a number of purposes. The agreement came about through the efforts of Heather A. Pinowar, a post-doc at UBC whose “work depends on text mining, using computers to automatically pull certain kinds of information from large amounts of text, including databases of journal articles.” ¬†See details in Jennifer Howard’s article in the Chronicle of Higher Education.
