Scholarly publishers want to provide open access to federally-funded research

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Inside Higher Ed reports that a consortium of scholarly publishers have put forward a proposal that would allow them to provide access to federally-funded research, as required by the presidential directive to key federal agencies.  The initiative, called CHORUS (Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States), suggests that journal web sites host the federally-funded research that is required to be made open access.   This proposal would, of course, allow the publishers to market their products to an audience in search of the publicly-available research.    Universities and other open access proponents are preparing a proposal of their own.
