Abstract: The continuing move to online publication of research, exponential increase in data collection, and expansion of public access mandates globally are just some of the factors that make scholarly communications so much more complex today than they were 20 years ago. As a result, publishers have invested significantly in tools and services to help make the research process more efficient and effective-from manuscript submission systems to CrossRef DOIs to ORCID unique identifiers for researchers. CHORUS-the Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States-is a new, not-for-profit, publisher-led initiative designed to help implement public access to the articles resulting from US federally-funded research, as required by the Office of Science and Technology Policy's February 2013 memo.
