David Wojick's writings and stuff: DOE says OA publishers must join CHORUS

Summary:

"Synopsis: The US Energy Department says that if publishers want PAGES based public access for their OA articles they must join CHORUS to get it. This is ironic, as the OA community has been generally negative about CHORUS. Non-CHORUS publishers may want to ask DOE to reconsider this policy. However a limited form of immediate public access may be available for those publishers who do not join CHORUS. (Note: for background information see http://insidepublicaccess.com/issues/IPA_2014-08-13_DOE_confusions.pdf)"
