Can we use PLOS materials?

Sérgio V.
Hi, please, just to confirm if yes or no:
The Scientific journal PLOS is told Open Access, as they say:
"REPRODUCTION OF ARTICLES - Articles and **accompanying materials** published by PLOS on the PLOS Sites, unless otherwise indicated, are licensed by the respective authors of such articles for use and distribution by you subject to citation of the original source in accordance with the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license" (https://www.plos.org/terms-of-use).
According to
CC BY is compatible with OSM requirements.
So, if following those quoted conditions, can we use those **accompanying materials** (like some SHP of interesting places) to import to OSM according to their licence?
Thanks for more info.

Please see https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2017/03/17/use-of-cc-by-data/


And really, besides all the other problems with the wiki, deducing anything from the membership of an article in one of the multiple 10'000 essentially random categories is not a good idea.
