• About CORE

    The mission of CORE (COnnecting REpositories) is to aggregate all open access research outputs from repositories and journals worldwide and make them available to the public. In this way CORE facilitates free unrestricted access to research for all. CORE harvests openly accessible content available according to the definition. CORE aims to facilitate free access and reuse of open access research outputs distributed across many systems. We provide services for different stakeholders including academics and researchers, repository managers, funders and developers.
