version 2.5 of the licenses requires attribution to:

"(i) the name of the Original Author (or pseudonym, if applicable) if  
supplied, and/or (ii) if the Original Author and/or Licensor  
designate another party or parties (e.g. a sponsor institute,  
publishing entity, journal)

...so yes, the current version is designed to take account of  
journal's desire to be acknowledged as the first source of  
publication. this is similar to the open access law program which is  
part of the science commons project: http://sciencecommons.org/ 

you can also find information about the change in the attribution  
requirement from these blog entries: http://creativecommons.org/ 
weblog/5447 and http://creativecommons.org/weblog/entry/5457
