Today, ACRL and SAGE presented a webinar on SHARE, CHORUS, and OA. Some key points:
- OSTP mandate in Feb 2013.
- DOE public access plan released July 2014. Access is provided through PAGES portal: (1) link through CHORUS; or (2) author deposits accepted manuscript in institutional repository (IR) no later than 12 months after publication.
- SHARE: idea is to connect IRs.
- Challenges: preservation of, access to, and reuse of research outputs. Workflow, infrastructure, policy.
- SHARE Components: notification service, registry (inventory), discovery, mining & reuse
- Supported by IMLS and Sloan and partnered with Center for Open Science in Charlottesville, VA
- Tweet @SHARE_Research
- CHORUS: identification, discovery, access, preservation, compliance
- largely non-profit, over 100 signatories, publishers funded
- CHOR incorporated Oct 1, 2013: 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity
- DOE partnered Aug 4, 2014
- Exploring international
- Leveraging existing infrastructures: crossref, fundref, ORCID, Portical, CLOCKSS
- Collaborate with SHARE
- Tweet @chorusaccess
- alignment of interests between the two. able to better identify research activity. adopting metadata standards like ORCID and fundref.
- publishers know very little about what happens outside of publication realm.
- CHORUS does not display articles — only points to them. Publishers make the articles available –one version of record.
- What about data requirements? CHORUS framework is built around DOI so it can be used for data.
- Both SHARE and CHORUS contain metadata pointers –not another repository.
- SHARE probably will have more data than CHORUS because it has a more expansive view of research.
- ORCID makes everything that much easier to track.
Recording of the webinar should be made available soon.
