COnnecting REpositories (CORE)
The CORE project aims to facilitate the access and navigation across relevant scientific papers stored in Open Access repositories. The project will make a new open metadata repository available in the Linked Data format describing the semantic relatedness between resources stored across a selection of UK repositories, including the Open University Open Research Online (ORO). A resource discovery web-service and a demonstrator client will be provided to allow UK repositories to easily navigate their users to relevant open access content stored across repositories. The usefulness of this service will be demonstrated on the ORO repository which will provide navigation links to related content in other repositories. CORE will also focus on the development of good practice for the service reuse and uptake in collaboration with OpenDOAR. The resulting metadata repository will be released under a Creative Commons license.
