CORE Recommender is a plugin for repositories, journals and web interfaces that provides suggestions on relevant articles to the article a user is looking for. The source of recommended data is the base of CORE, which consists of over 25 million full texts from CORE. Today we have interviewed George Macgregor, Scholarly Publications & Research Data Manager at the University of Strathclyde, responsible for the Strathprints institutional repository. Read about his experience of using CORE Recommender on the Jisc Research blog.
Flowcite has teamed up with CORE, the world’s largest aggregator of open access research papers. The partnership will provide Flowcite users with free and unlimited access to millions of open access research papers from the CORE database.
CORE is delighted to partner with Flowcite and progress our aligned goals to make open research content available to all. By connecting our innovative solutions we continue to evolve the way research is being completed and increase the discoverability and usage of all research outputs.” Dr Petr Knoth, CORE Founder.
October to December 2020 CORE broke records, partnered with arXiv.org and continued improving our REF2021 compliance monitoring service. The CORE team had a busy end to 2020!
Our team concentrated on multiple areas, including collaboration with the open access community and new feature development. Find out more details on Jisc Research Blog.
The team continues to work on improving the CORE. This period was a highly productive period for CORE in terms of growing and developing our products.

The first edition of the shared task organised by the researchers at CORE, Knowledge Media Institute (KMi), The Open University, UK featured the classification of citations for research impact analysis. The new shared task, known as the 3C Citation Context Classification task, organised as part of the 8th International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications (WOSP), 2020 and was hosted on the free data science competitions hosting platform, Kaggle InClass.

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.
CORE’s mission is to increase the discoverability of open access research and promote as widely as possible the content of our data providers, i.e., repositories, journals, and web resources. We currently collaborate with more than 10,000 data providers from around the world and are continuously looking for new ways to increase this number to offer an as complete as possible coverage of the world’s open access content.
More information about the new workflow for adding new data providers and gaining access to the CORE Repository Dashboard can be found at Jisc Scholarly Communications.
