American Physical Society (APS) Begins Adding U.S. Dept. of Energy-Funded Research Articles to CHORUS Database

From Sue Spilka at CHORUS:

An important milestone was reached on August 1st when publisher member American Physical Society (APS) released its first wave of DOE-funded research articles, making them publicly accessible to non-subscribers through CHORUS, several months ahead of the DOE’s official October 1st start date. The articles released were published over one year ago; going forward APS will release about 150 to 200 articles each month as their embargoes expire.

The dashboard service enables funders, institutions, researchers, publishers, and the public to keep track of public-access compliance by our publisher members. CHORUS monitors Publisher Member/Pilot Participant content and audits for public access and other criteria. The agency dashboard links below provide both aggregated data and a path to the actual articles.

Examples: Dashboard For NASA ||| Dashboard For National Science Foundation

Note: In the upper right-hard corner of each dashboard clicking the “Search” link will run a search of the CHORUS database limited to the specific organization/agency.
