The latest newsletter from the Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States (CHORUS) tells us that IEEE and IOP recently joined the organization.
The newsletter also notes that CHORUS is talking with a number of research data initiatives and projects.
From the newsletter:
As access to research data has become an increasingly important issue in the scholarly community, it has become clear that CHORUS can help to make it a reality. As a result, we’ve started to explore connections to data repositories and collaborate with a wide array of innovative, cooperative data initiatives. Executive Director Howard Ratner is involved with the CrossRef–DataCite Pilot and the RDA-WDS Publishing Data Services Working Group, and is talking with the RMap Project, Dataverse, Dryad and Figshare.
