Why should I deposit my work with CORE?

Depositing your work with a repository ensures that it is archived and attributed to you and makes it quickly and widely available to others.

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.

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.
