Cambridge University Press launches new content sharing service pilot

(8 December 2017) The world’s oldest publisher is today [Friday, 8 December] launching a new content sharing service – Cambridge Core Share – providing the academic community and wider public with greater access to research.

Cambridge University Press has developed the new service on its Cambridge Core platform and will extend the functionality to a select number of journals during an initial pilot phase.

The publisher is the first University Press to build a sharing service on its own platform. The move comes a year after the successful launch of Cambridge Core – the Press’s online home of over 34,000 academic books and over 370 journals – which has seen content usage increase by up to 25% and user registrations increase by 24% each month.

Improving content discoverability and collaboration for users worldwide, Cambridge Core Share enables users to share content quickly, easily and responsibly. Authors and subscribers can generate a read-only link to a journal article which can be shared online, allowing anyone to read the final published version of the article for free.

Cambridge Core Share also allows article usage to be recorded, enabling authors to effectively demonstrate the impact of their work.
