Fatcat is a versioned, user-editable catalog of research publications including journal articles, conference proceedings, and datasets

Features include archival file-level metadata (verified digests and long-term copies), an open, documented API, and work/release indexing (eg, distinguishing between and linking pre-prints, manuscripts, and version-of-record).  Read more...

This service is hosted at The Internet Archive, a US non-profit dedicated to providing Universal Access to All Knowledge. Donations welcome!

Development funding comes from The Andrew Mellon Foundation to improve preservation and access to "long-tail" open access works on the public web which might otherwise be lost.
