Day 3 – CHORUS (Discovery)

CHORUS – a new path to public access to research

chorusCHORUS bills itself as  “an innovative and cost-effective approach to delivering public access to scholarly content reporting from funded research”.  To support the discovery phase of the research process, its search tool enables discovery of articles reporting on funded research produced by its long list of prestigious member partners.    Using CHORUS helps you by optimizing discovery via  a common search engine and enables access to article reporting on funded research.  It also directs search results to the best available version of the article, and provides you with context, tools, and correction/retraction information.

Start your CHORUS search by entering a funder name (such as NSF or Sloan Foundation) and refine by directorates and division, research categories, publishers, journals, or years.  This is powerful tool to discover and gain insight on funded research that is being produced.   Try a search today at http://search.chorusaccess.org/
