CORE joins stakeholder group of the Initiative for Open Abstracts (I4OA)

The I4OA was launched this September, calling for an increase in the volume of open abstracts. After having identified that either a large number of the published literature does not have open abstracts, or that available abstracts are currently disseminated via proprietary platforms with reuse restrictions, I4OA calls the publishing community to open up all abstracts of the published literature. 

CORE fully supports the I4OA initiative as this matches CORE’s mission. By being an aggregator of research content available in thousands of repositories and journals, we understand how important it is for metadata of research papers, which includes the abstract, to be openly available.  read more...

CORE Recommender now supports article discovery on arXiv
