From the about:

CORE (COnnecting REpositories) aims to facilitate free access to scholarly publications distributed across many systems. As of today, CORE gives you access to millions of scholarly articles aggregated from many Open Access repositories.

We believe in free access to information. The mission of CORE is to:

  • Support the right of citizens and general public to access the results of research towards which they contributed by paying taxes.
  • Facilitate access to Open Access content for all by targeting general public, software developers, researchers, etc., by improving search and navigation using state-of-the-art technologies in the field of natural language processing and the Semantic Web.
  • Provide support to both content consumers and content providers by working with digital libraries and institutional repositories.
  • Contribute to a cultural change by promoting Open Access.

BTW, CORE also allows you to harvest their data.

As of today, August 28, 2013, 13,639,485 articles.

Excellent resource for scholarly publications!

Not to mention a useful yardstick for other publication indexing projects.

What does your indexing project offer that CORE does not?

That is rather than duplicating indexing we already possess, where it the value-add of your indexing?
