1. DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION HAVE AN OPEN ACCESS STRATEGY? AND HOW ARE YOU IMPLEMENTING IT?
CORE is an Open University (OU) project and is jointly funded by the OU and Jisc. CORE is a global full text aggregator of Open Access content harvesting repositories, institutional and disciplinary, and Open Access and Hybrid Journals.
Today, the CORE team at the OU runs the CORE service, which is the world’s largest aggregator of open access research publications, from repositories and journals systems at a full text level.
Currently CORE harvests more than 3700 repositories, 6000 journals and has 80 million metadata records and almost 8.5 million full text. Our mission is to aggregate all Open Access research outputs and make them available to the public. We support the citizens’ right to have access to information and we have established a wide set of services for that purpose. All our services are free of cost to the end user and enable them to gain access to Open Access content both in a human and machine readable form and develop their own applications using our content.
