3C Shared task: A Kaggle Competition for Citation Context Classification
Researchers from CORE are organizing a new shared task: the ‘3C’ Citation Context Classification Task, as part of the International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications, WOSP 2020 (​https://wosp.core.ac.uk/jcdl2020/index.html​). The new task will be hosted on Kaggle (​https://www.kaggle.com/c/about/inclass​), which is a popular Machine Learning/Data Science competition hosting platform. The competition uses a portion of the  Academic Citation Typing (ACT) dataset  (​http://oro.open.ac.uk/60670/​), which is the largest dataset of its type in existence, which is also the only dataset of citations annotated by authors and the only truly multidisciplinary dataset. Using this dataset, the shared task aims at classifying the citation context in research publications based on their influence and purpose. There will be two subtasks associated with this shared task. The subtask A is a multi-class classification problem, where citations are categorized into six different classes based on the purpose. The second subtask B is a binary classification task, based on the citation influence.read more...

CORE welcomes a leading figure in the quest for Open Access to scientific knowledge
Last Tuesday, March 3, we were privileged at CORE to welcome a leading figure in the quest for Open Access to scientific knowledge. 

Last Tuesday, March 3, we were privileged at CORE to welcome a leading figure in the quest for Open Access to scientific knowledge. 
Professor Carl Malamud is a highly-regarded American technologist, author, and public domain advocate, known for his foundation Public.Resource.Org. He is on a crusade to liberate information locked up behind paywalls — and his campaigns have scored many victories. His mission is quite similar to CORE’s one, as we also work on aggregating all open access research outputs from repositories and journals worldwide and make them available to the public without hitting the paywall. Carl has spent decades publishing copyrighted legal documents, from building codes to court records, and then arguing that such texts represent public-domain law that ought to be available to any citizen online. read more...

CORE releases CORE Discovery tool
CORE has released a BETA version of the CORE Discovery tool, which offers a one-click access to free copies of research papers whenever you might hit a paywall. 
Our free CORE Discovery service provides you with:
  • Highest coverage of freely available content. Our tests have shown CORE Discovery finding more free content than any other discovery system.
  • Free service for researchers by researchers. CORE Discovery is the only free content discovery extension developed by researchers for researchers. There is no major publisher or enterprise controlling and profiting from your usage data.
  • Best grip on open repository content. Due to CORE being a leader in harvesting open access literature, CORE Discovery has the best grip on open content from open repositories as opposed to other services that disproportionately focus only on content indexed in major commercial databases.
  • Repository integration and discovering documents without a DOI. The only service offering seamless and free integration into repositories. CORE Discovery is also the only discovery system that can locate scientific content even for items with an unknown DOI or which do not have a DOI.
The tool is available as:
  • A browser extension for researchers and anyone interested in reading scientific documents
  • Plugin for repositories, enriching metadata only pages in repositories with links to freely available copies of the paper
  • API for developers and third party services
If you are interested in the CORE Discovery plugin do get in touch
