Managing content

Monitor repository harvesting and health; manage access to documents from your repository in CORE and see your download stats.

Register your OAI identifiers

Freely register your OAI identifiers so that our OAI Resolver can resolve these PIDs directly and persistently to your repository system.

Content enrichments

Obtain DOI enrichments detected by CORE for your content.

Compliance checking

Assess how your repository meets open access policies and best practices.

How it works

How it works

The Repository Dashboard provides an online interface offering valuable technical information and statistics for content providers. It is the tool you need to check that your repository is configured correctly to provide maximum visibility to your research outputs. Additional features include OAI Resolver resolution, persistent identifiers (PIDs) enrichments, access to repository tools enhancing user experience (Recommender and Discovery) and ability to promote your logos across the CORE ecosystem. For UK members, it also offers REF Open Access compliance monitoring and a RIOXX metadata quality validator.
