CORE: connecting repositories in the open access domain

Knoth, Petr and Zdrahal, Zdenek (2011). CORE: connecting repositories in the open access domain. In: CERN Workshop on Innovations in Scholarly Communication (OAI7), 22-24 Jun 2011, Geneva, Switzerland.



This submission reports on the results of the ongoing JISC-funded project CORE (COnnecting REpositories) which aims to facilitate the access and navigation across relevant scientific papers stored in Open Access repositories. This is being achieved by harvesting metadata and full-text content from diverse Open Access repositories, applying text mining techniques to discover semantic relations between the articles and representing and exposing these relations as Linked Data. The information about associations between articles will be made publicly available to enable the emergence of a wide range of applications that can exploit the provided data. Within this project, we will demonstrate the usability of the CORE system on two use-cases: (1) Improving the accessibility of content and the navigation capabilities for digital library users, (2) Enabling more ubiquitous access to digital content through smart phones and tablet devices.
