Smithsonian Includes CHORUS in Public Access Plan

According to the Smithsonian’s Plan for Increased Public Access to Results of Federally Funded Research (effective Oct. 1, 2015), all applicable publications and supporting data that comes from federally funded research submitted on or after that date will be available via Smithsonian Research Online (SRO) or CHORUS (Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States). For journals that are CHORUS members, SRO and CHORUS will link to the publisher’s public access version of the articles.

“Our agreement formalizes a collaboration that will soon begin to yield benefits for the public. By leveraging existing infrastructure with new services and technologies, CHORUS helps minimize the Smithsonian’s administrative compliance efforts and maximizes identification, discovery, access and monitoring of that content,” says Howard Ratner, CHORUS’ executive director.

For more information, read the press release.
