Highwire Press becomes CHORUS affiliate

Share this on social media:

HighWire Press, the technology platform and strategic partner to scholarly publishers and societies, has announced its participation as an affiliate member of CHORUS (Clearing House for the Open Research of the United States).

A not-for-profit membership organisation, CHORUS' goal is to help publishers comply with mandates from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and to streamline access to the best available version of federally funded research articles, using CrossRef Funding Data and other open technology integrations.

HighWire has been involved in keeping the dialog about CHORUS and the OSTP access initiative active within the HighWire publisher community, convening an interactive discussion on the topic beginning in the summer of 2013.

Susan King, chair of the CHORUS Board, and Howard Ratner, executive director of CHORUS, have both participated in HighWire Publishers' Meetings and webinars where they shared their enthusiasm for expanding partnerships with funding agencies and publishers.

'HighWire actively listens to the issues facing the publishing community,' said Dan Filby, CEO of HighWire Press. 'Our membership in CHORUS demonstrates our continued investment in innovative technologies to solve the evolving requirements of scholarly communication.'
