Cambridge University Press launches Cambridge Core Share

Content sharing tool supports wider access to research.

Cambridge Core Share enables authors and readers to generate a link to an online, read-only journal article.

This link can be freely shared on social media sites and scholarly collaboration networks to enhance both the impact and discoverability of research.

It allows for article usage to be recorded, enabling authors to further demonstrate the impact of their work. This is not possible in the current practice of sharing article PDFs.

The online link allows the final published version of a journal article to be shared, ensuring the content accessed on any platform, at any time, is always up-to-date.

Anyone who has been sent a link can view a journal article without having to subscribe to Cambridge Core, allowing for content to be shared and accessed more widely. 

Over 120 journals are taking part in the initial pilot stage of the project.
