CHORUS recently announced that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ORCID to support discoverability in scholarly communications. This type of collaboration among organizations like CHORUS and ORCID is key to continuing to meet the changing needs of the scholarly community.

ORCID Executive Director Laurel Haak said, “Creating and supporting authoritative connections between researchers and their works, funding sources, and affiliations, is essential for delivering public access to scholarly content. Together, CHORUS and ORCID have an important contribution to make to the scholarly community, coordinating efforts to adopt identifiers and standards to manage access to and reporting of research outputs.”

Services that support the flow of research communications are at the forefront of the next phase of scholarly communications. The two organizations will also engage in regular strategic conversations at the leadership level and explore coordinated communications.
