SHARE, CHORUS, and Open Access: What you need to know
In early 2013, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) directed Federal agencies with more than $100M in R&D Expenditures
to develop plans to make federally funded research openly available to the public within one year of publication. Partly in response to this directive, university and library groups partnered to develop the SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE)
to promote the preservation of, access to, and reuse of scholarly research. Similarly, publishers, scholarly societies, and service providers came together to create the Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States (CHORUS)
to increase public access to peer-reviewed publications that report on federally funded research. With similar missions and goals, how might the two groups might work together to promote access to research? Where do they overlap, and how do they differ? And how might individual librarians get involved with these efforts?
In honor of Open Access Week
, Judy Ruttenberg, from SHARE, and Howard Ratner, from CHORUS will come together for a free
1-hour webinar to discuss the following:
- What has been the response so far to the OSTP mandate among different federal departments?
- What are the functions and goals of SHARE and CHORUS and how do the groups relate to the OSTP mandate?
- Where do the two groups overlap, where do they complement each other, and how do they differ?
- How can the groups work together to promote access to research?
- What can librarians do to help their patrons benefit from the efforts of both groups?
Their words will be followed by some Q & A led by David Ross, executive publisher of open access at SAGE.
