ONLY A FEW SPACES LEFT…
Don’t delay… Anyone interested in finding out more about how CHORUS works and how to participate should sign up for our in-person Technical Implementation Workshop on 18 December 2014 at the AAP’s NYC offices at 71 Fifth Avenue, 2nd Floor.
Can’t make it? We’re holding another Technical Implementation Workshop on 3 February 2015 in Washington, D.C., on the day prior to the AAP/PSP Annual Meeting. And we’ll be scheduling a webinar soon.
WELCOME NEW MEMBERS!
CHORUS is pleased to be working with the following new Publisher Members to advance public access: American Society for Plant Biologists, The Royal Society, and The Optical Society. All members are now prominently displayed on our website.
The more members, partners, and supporters that sign on with CHORUS, the more value our organization has for the research community.

- Affiliate Members – open to non-publisher organizations and business involved in scholarly publishing (fee)
- Funder Partners – open to organizations that support research (no fee)
