This is an excerpt of a joint announcement of Jisc and The Open University regarding CORE
Jisc and The Open University have had a long-standing relationship delivering CORE (core.ac.uk) for over 10 years. During this time, the service has grown from a project to an important and widely used Open Research infrastructure.
The current Jisc – OU contract for delivering CORE to the open scholarly community is expiring in July 2023. From this time onwards CORE will be operated by The Open University and will no longer receive direct funding from Jisc. The Open University is grateful to Jisc for its support of CORE over the last ten years.
Jisc are supporting the roll-out of CORE’s new membership scheme for UK institutions, which will be launched later this month. If you are a Jisc member, you will be able to sign up directly via Licence Subscriptions Manager.
