Q. Why should I deposit my work with CORE?
Preservation: Depositing your work with a repository ensures that it is archived and attributed to you and makes it quickly and widely available to others.
Access and Privacy: Uploading scholarship to CORE makes it quickly and widely available to others-without requiring them to register for Commons or provide us with any personal information.
Attribution: Works deposited with CORE are automatically given a permanent identifier called a DOI. DOIs provide persistent, citable metadata for scholarly and creative works, including gray literature such as blog posts, syllabi, data sets, presentations, and video and audio files.
Discoverability: Materials uploaded to CORE are indexed by Google, Google Scholar, SHARE, Altmetric, and BASE-OA, which fuels open-access initiatives such as the OA Button and OA DOI. Since you can notify the members of the any of your Humanities Commons groups when you upload materials to the CORE, the platform offers another discovery mechanism for the people most likely to want to read your work.
Since you can associate items you deposit with up to five Humanities Commons groups, CORE offers the added advantage of sharing your work with an immediate audience of scholars in your field.
