At the beginning of July, LIBER and 17 other research and library organisations across Europe called on Elsevier to withdraw its current policy on text and data mining (TDM).

The number of signatories to the letter now totals 38 organisations, plus individual researchers, professors and librarians. All signatories are listed in the third release of our letter.

The letter explains why we believe that Elsevier’s current TDM policy places unnecessary restrictions on researchers by limiting their ability, and their right, to mine content to which they have legal access.
