The recommender is a plugin for repositories, journal systems and web interfaces that provides suggestions on relevant articles to the one currently displayed. Its purpose is to support users in discovering articles of interest from across the network of open access repositories. We have validated that all recommended articles are free to read and can be accessed without a paywall. Thus, the CORE Recommender increases the visibility of open access content. Being open should pay off!
Uniqueness of the CORE Recommender:
- We ensure that the recommended articles are available open access, ensuring that what gets recommended can also be freely read.
- Our state-of-the-art recommendation algorithm makes use of article full texts, not just metadata, in addition to a wide range of other features. Read more on how the algorithm works in our research section.
- We provide our recommendation service for free and the installation is straightforward.
For those with access to the CORE Repository Dashboard - the Recommender installation guidelines and an installation key can be accessed via the Dashboard. Log into the Dashboard and then choose the tab Get the recommender.
