Creative Commons

Creative Commons is an organization that issues free and easy-to-use copyright licenses. These licenses allow creators to legally share their work on conditions of their choice. In this way, Creative Commons contributes to a more equitable and accessible information landscape. Choose a Creative Commons license for your work.


ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is an organization that provides researchers with unique digital identifiers to use as they engage in research and scholarship. Creators can use their ORCID ID to ensure that they are connected to their contributions across affiliations, disciplines, and time, and to make sure they get credit for their work.


CORE (COnnecting REpositories) is one of the largest search engines for open access articles from all over the world. By aggregating content from various repositories, CORE enables users to search 125 million open access articles, more than 10 million of which are full-text. 

OA Button

OA Button is a tool that allows users to bookmark resources that are behind paywalls when they find them. OA Button then automatically connects to CORE in order to search for the resources in OA repositories. 

OER Commons

OER Commons offers a comprehensive infrastructure for educators of all levels to identify OER resources and collaborate in their adaptation, evaluation, and use.
