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.
You can found something interesting about:
- Improving access to the CORE Repository Dashboard
- Improving data provider registration
- CORE’s team involves an international event on processing research papers
- CORE Discovery and repositories
- CORE’s work on product improvement
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.

CORE is happy to announce the release of a new version of the CORE Repository Dashboard. The update will be of particular interest to UK repositories as we are releasing with it a new tool to support REF2021 open access compliance assessment. The tool was developed for repository managers and research administrators to improve the harvesting of their repository outputs and ensure their content is visible to the world. Full details here.
Thousands of data providers from almost 150 countries from all over the world are connected with researchers, students, life long learners, and the general public via CORE. This past month CORE’s monthly users reached 20 million – we are really proud of it and grateful to all our content providers. Read more about this here.
Members of the CORE Team have been working on submissions for the Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) and today we are extremely happy to inform our readers that our two teams have both received acceptance notices. Doctors Bikash Gyawali, Nancy Pontika and Petr Knoth have been working on “Open Access 2007-2017: Country and University Level Perspective” while David Pride and Dr. Petr Knoth worked on another submission entitled, “An Authoritative Approach to Citation Classification”.

CORE follows its mission and makes open access more visible and reusable by being an enabling infrastructure. This time CORE joins its forces with Lean Library, whose aim is to provide seamless access to research materials for users. Due to this collaboration with Lean Library, the CORE Discovery service will now be indirectly used by library systems integrating Lean Library, thereby reaching more users. More information about this integration can be found here.
