The world’s largest collection of open access research papers
Microsoft partnered with CORE to link documents in the MicrosoftAcademic Graph with open access articles in CORE, as the datasetscomplement each other. The outcome is the world’s largest scholarlygraph with both bibliographic information, including citations,and full texts of academic papers for machine processing.
With millions of research papers available across thousands of differentsystems, CORE provides an invaluable service helping researchers to savetime and effort. CORE’s mission to make all this content available for textand data mining is critical for future avenues of research, and a majorpart of advancing open science.
The OpenAIRE infrastructure has recently started a collaboration withthe CORE Team led by Petr Knoth in order to include in the OpenAIREmetadata and file aggregation chain the resources made available viathe ResourceSync connector realised at the CORE Team Lab. To this aim,the OpenAIRE team is testing the CORE ResourceSync Connector code withthe intention of integrating it in its production system beforethe end of 2017.
Aggregation plays an increasingly essential role in maximising thelong-term benefits of open access, helping to turn the promise of a'research commons' into a reality. The aggregation services that COREprovides therefore make a very valuable contribution to the evolvingopen access environment in the UK.
CORE has supported the Open Access Button in connecting researchers andthe public with the research they need. CORE facilitates accessto the results of millions of research papers, a crucial functionin the Open Access movement.
