Here’s a quick intro to the project before we get to the latest news from the project.
CORE aims to facilitate free access to scholarly publications distributed across many systems. As of today, CORE gives you access to millions of scholarly articles aggregated from many Open Access repositories.
- Support the right of citizens and general public to access the results of research towards which they contributed by paying taxes.
- Facilitate access to Open Access content for all by targeting general public, software developers, researchers, etc., by improving search and navigation using state-of-the-art technologies in the field of natural language processing and the Semantic Web.
- Provide support to both content consumers and content providers by working with digital libraries and institutional repositories.
- Contribute to a cultural change by promoting Open Access.
The project provides a number of resources:
1. CORE Portal
Web-based search of many repositories. An advanced search interface is also available. Material comes from a number of repositories along with articles made available from publications included in the Directory of Open Access Journals. Here’s an example of a search results page limiting to articles from specific year and with full text available online.
2. CORE Plugin
3. CORE API
4. CORE Mobile
CORE can also provide repositories with analytics.
Until yesterday, only Android users had access to a mobile app.
That has now changed.
CORE has just released an iOS app that works with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
Direct to new iOS App.
