The current version of the Plugin recommends full-text items in Open Access repositories that are related to: (a) a metadata record, (b) a full-text item in pdf, (c) any piece of text, or (d) any combination of the previous. The more information is supplied the more accurate is the result. In the past, CORE required the resource that is used as a query to be available also as Open Access. This is no longer the requirement, but it is still a good practice.
The Bazaar package is the quickest way of installing the plugin. It uses the same API mentioned below, but requires less configuration.
- Request an API Key
- In you EPrints install, go to the EPrints Bazaar Admin page and search for 'CORE Widget' and install
- Once installed, go to the CORE Widget Configure page and find the line
- Save the file, and reload the Configuration.
- In Admin->System Tools, regenerate the abstracts and views.
- Visit a document in your repository and see CORE's suggested similar documents.
Replace InsertKeyHere with the API key we will send you.
Please request an API Key. Please also mention that you require the Plugin Files.
The CORE Plugin consists of four files:
URL define the document with respect to which the recommendations are provided. We suggest to use either
URL. If the document has not yet been harvested by CORE, the system will try to access the pdf copy at the location specified by the
URL parameter. It is therefore important that the specified URL is public. If the document is not associated with a full-text, the CORE Plugin can still be used (but the result is likely to be less precise than when using full-text). Just specify any number of tthe parameters. The more information is provided, the better result you will get. Finally, it is necessary to specify your API key which you can freely obtain by contacting us. More information is provided here.
Then in the body, specify a div into which the plugin will be loaded.
The style of the Plugin can be adapted to your repository needs in the
jquery.coreWidget.js allows adapting the layout of the Plugin, however, we ask users not to change the information in the footer and its appearance.
Please do not hesitate to contact us, should you have any problems when integrating the CORE Plugin,
