The CLOCKSS Archive, a not-for-profit joint venture between the world's leading academic publishers and research libraries, has entered into an agreement with CHORUS (Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States) to support the archiving, preservation, and perpetual public access to articles reporting on US federally funded research, at no additional cost to taxpayers.
As a result of the agreement, CHORUS Publisher Members will be able to take advantage of a special arrangement with CLOCKSS to establish permanent, perpetual public access to content and ensure the integrity and sustainability of the scholarly record. CHORUS works with US federal agencies, publishers, service providers, and researchers to enable, monitor, and preserve public access to published articles. Built on CrossRef's open, interoperable framework, CHORUS services are initiated when researchers submit their articles to publishers.
About CLOCKSS: The CLOCKSS's (Controlled LOCKSS) Archive mission is to build a sustainable, geographically distributed dark archive with which to ensure the long-term survival of Web-based scholarly publications for the benefit of the greater global research community.
