CORE makes it to the top 5,000 websites globally by user engagement

CORE has just made it to the top 5,000 websites globally accroding to Alexa Global Rank, which is calculated from a combination of daily visitors and page views on a website over a 3 month period. As of today, CORE ranks at 4,924, climbing 871 places over the last 90 days. The improvement is impressive considerring that academic websites typically experience a seasonal slowdown during the summer break. As a result, the rank is likely to improve even further. 

For instance, these are the ranks of the Open University (10,605), British Library (17,925), Directory of Open Access journals (24,255) and OpenAIRE (508,394). These are very strong data, showing the amazing value for money of CORE to the society.
