COAR's vision

A sustainable, inclusive, and trusted global knowledge commons based on a network of open access digital repositories

COAR aims to position repositories as the foundation for a distributed, globally networked infrastructure for scholarly communication, on top of which layers of value added services will be deployed, thereby transforming the system, making it more research-centric, open to and supportive of innovation, while also collectively managed by the scholarly community.
