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.

CORE’s open access and text mining services – 2016 growth (or, how about them stats – 2016 edition)

The past year has been productive for the CORE team; the number of harvested repositories and our open access content, both in metadata and full-text, has massively increased. (You can see last year’s blog post with our 2015 achievements in numbers here.)

There was also progress with regards to our services; the number of our API users was almost doubled in 2016, we have now about 200 registered CORE Dashboard users, and this past October we released a new version of our recommender and updated our dataset.

CORE released a new Dataset

picture1We are pleased to announce that we have released a new version of our dataset, which contains data aggregated by CORE in a downloadable file.

It is intended for (possibly computationally intensive) data analysis. Here you can read the dataset description and the download page. If you need fresh data, and your requirements are not computationally intensive, you can also use our API.
