An online editing and proofreading company, Scribendi, has recently put together a list of top 21 freely available online databases. It is a pleasure to see CORE listed as Number 1 resource in this list. CORE has been included in this list thanks to its large volume of open access and free of cost content, offering 66 million of bibliographic metadata records and 5 million of full-text research outputs. Our content originates from open access journals and repositories, both institutional and disciplinary and can be accessed via our search engine. In addition, we also offer an API and Datasets for programmable access to this content, enabling the development of new artificial intelligence-based applications for scientists and for carrying out text and data mining of scientific literature.
A couple of days ago we released a new version of our website and if you visit our main page it now looks slightly different.
One of our aims was to showcase in a more clear way the CORE testimonials, i.e. what others think of the project and how the community uses our products, mainly our API and Datasets. In an effort to give credit to the universities and companies that are using our services, such as our Recommender and API, we are now displaying their logos on our main page. Our last new item is our research partners; CORE could not offer some of its services without co-operating with other projects, such as IRUS-UK, RIOXX and more.
CORE is thrilled to announce that it currently provides 5 millions of open access full-text papers.
“In the last year, we have managed to scale up our harvesting process. This enabled us to significantly increase the amount of open access content we can offer to our users. With more and more open access content being made available by data providers, thanks to recent open access policies, CORE now also captures and provides access to a higher percentage of global research literature ”, says CORE’s founder, Dr Petr Knoth.
