CHORUS is a global not-for-profit organisation which helps funders, institutions, publishers, and the public see, find, and understand the status of outputs of funded research. Its activities are funded by its member partners and institutional subscribers.
Howard Ratner will give a short overview of CHORUS and the data services provided to funders, publishers and institutions and cover some of the wider contributions CHORUS makes to facilitate open research within the scholarly communications ecosystem.
Judy Russell and Michael Levine-Clark, as eminent librarians from North America will each explain how CHORUS is used within their own institutions, the reasons why CHORUS is one of their solutions and how open data is so essential for the research community.
Following short presentations there will be an opportunity to ask all three panellists specific questions relating to ALIA members needs and issues and whether CHORUS could be of interest.
