Tool to Support with REF2021 Open Access Compliance has been released in the New Version of the CORE Repository Dashboard

The New Core Repository Dashboard

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.

Track compliance of the REF2021 open access policy with the CORE Repository Dashboard

The new and updated CORE Repository Dashboard aims to help UK repository managers comply with the REF2021 Open Access policy. As a global aggregator of open access content collecting research papers from a wide range of repositories around the world, CORE can provide information about deposit compliance and assist institutions with identifying non-compliant outputs, i.e. outputs deposited too late.

The REF2021 compliance tracking tool was presented (26th March) in a fully booked webinar (slides and recording) attended by 131 repository managers and research administrators from the UK Council of Research Repositories (UKCoRR) and the Association of Research Managers and Administrators (ARMA) groups.  read more...

He is on a crusade to liberate information locked up behind paywalls — and his campaigns have scored many victories. His mission is quite similar to CORE’s one, as we also work on aggregating all open access research outputs from repositories and journals worldwide and make them available to the public without hitting the paywall. Carl has spent decades publishing copyrighted legal documents, from building codes to court records, and then arguing that such texts represent public-domain law that ought to be available to any citizen online.  read more...
