Some thoughts on funding the growth and development of scholarly comms infrastructure and services:
Debt, Pensions and Capitalisation: Funding schol comms innovation -
One of the things that has been bothering me for some time is the question of finding the right governance and finance models for supporting both a core set of scholarly communications infrastructures and shared innovation spaces.

EC releases expert group report on Text and Data Mining for research. Only skimmed so far but looks very interesting
Lets try again: I'm *interested* because WB do a pretty good job on expressing licenses and I'd like to see some NC/NC-ND examples
I'm actually interesting because Wiley do a pretty good job of expressing licenses so am interesting in how that looks on NC/NC-ND articles
