From the referenced page: CHORUS aims to accelerate the awareness of Open Science. It is CHORUS’ mission to streamline the process of complying with open access and public access funder mandates.

Over the last few years, publishers have been making their Data Availability Policies known either at the publisher level or at the journal level. These policies range in their mandate, but most require authors to make all data necessary to replicate their study’s findings publicly available without restriction at the time of publication.

CHORUS has created a centralized index of our member publishers’ policies with links to the policies on the publisher’s site. This chart will be updated at least annually by CHORUS staff.
