CHORUS is a suite of services and best practices that provides a sustainable solution for agencies and publishers to deliver public access to published articles reporting on funded research in the United States.
The first initiative of CHOR, Inc., a US 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, it leverages widely used technology to facilitate a simple compliance process, optimized search and dashboard services, and multi-party archiving and preservation capabilities.
Powered by CrossRef’s FundRef and other open technologies, CHORUS is interoperable with other public-access delivery solutions, agency search portals, publisher platforms, and scholarly repositories and archives. Built on proven infrastructure, CHORUS operates at no cost to the government, academic institutions, and taxpayers and minimizes costs to publishers, overheads for funders, and administrative burden for authors.
More than 100 publishers – who collectively publish the vast majority of articles reporting on publicly funded research – have voiced their support for CHORUS. New articles are continuously added and freely accessible to the public on the publishers’ sites, either immediately on publication or after a designated embargo period.
This streamlined and cost-effective approach delivers value to funders, publishers, researchers, institutions, and the public at each point in the process of enabling public access:
