2014 SSP 36th Annual Meeting
Concurrent 2A: Expanding Public Access…
Last year, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) issued a memo calling for public-private partnerships to offer solutions for expanding public access to the results of federally funded research. This session will provide an up-to-the-minute progress report on where things stand. A representative from the OSTP will discuss the current state of funding agency policies, for access to research papers and data. The Executive Director of CHOR, Inc. will provide an update on CHORUS, (Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States). A publisher will review why they joined the CHORUS pilot and lessons learned as they implemented CHORUS on their journal platform. A representative from SHARE (Shared Access Research Ecosystem), the joint effort of the ARL, the AAU, and the APLU will discuss both their community-driven initiative to increase public access to research and maximize knowledge creation and how publishers can help support it.
