What Funders are saying about CHORUS

When you’re a federal agency and there’s a data call….it’s a huge resource drain. With CHORUS, because they’re collecting this data continuously and in a consistent way, all that’s automated for us, and that’s a big plus, Keith Kirk, US Geological Survey.

DOE has been providing public access to research since 1947. This has meant keeping up with and implementing radically changing technology across decades…Formalizing our collaboration can only propel our acquisition process leading to more comprehensive coverage of the landscape of articles,” Jeffery Salmon, US Department of Energy
