The Future of Research Communications and e-Scholarship

Author: Michael Eisen

The Association of American Publishers recently proposed to implement a public access database called CHORUS on behalf of funding agencies. Given their vocal opposition to the US government’s public access mandates on federally funded research, Michael Eisen is very sceptical of their ability to enable improved access. Furthermore, there is no need for commercial publishers to build a new system when the government already has systems like PubMedCentral to facilitate public access.
