As Brian Kelly summarizes, "The CORE (COnnecting REpositories) project aims to 'facilitate free access to scholarly publications distributed across many systems'." From the web site, the basic services offered by CORE are:
- CORE Portal - Allows to search and navigate scientific publications aggregated from a wide range of Open Access Repositories (OARs)
- CORE Mobile - An Android application that enables you to search and download open access articles.
- CORE Plugin - A Plugin to Open Access repositories that enables them to search for related scientific publications.
- CORE API - Enables external systems and services to interact with the CORE repository.
- Repository Analytics - A tool that enables to monitor the ingestion of metadata and content from repositories
Kelly wants in particular "to discover information held about Russell Group university repositories, based on a search of the CORE system using the obvious name for the host institution," but finds it difficult to filter repositories by host institution.
