The essence of text mining and data mining is that a machine and software is used for content analysis of large digital corpora. The Publishing Research Consortium commissioned a study on content mining of scholarly journal articles with 29 expert interviews and an international survey among publishers. The results with regard to the present policies and activities of publishers will be presented. As content mining of journal articles will spread and intensify, cross-publisher solutions can help facilitate content mining better. Various options for such cross publisher solutions will be discussed.
