The issue of scientific knowledge openness is urgent worldwide, but for Russia it is particularly crucial because of the inaccessibility of the most cited academic journals there. Solution for this issue is proposed by means of the gold-oriented method which assumes placing scientific papers of traditional academic journals in open access and ensuring their visibility on the Internet. This method is implemented in the project of open science repository called as CyberLeninka. It is designed for science and research activities promotion, public control of scientific publications quality, and papers-in-Russian citation increase. These are key features of this project: - Open Access — dissemination of knowledge by open access model (papers are available under Creative Commons Attribution license), - Open Data — export scientific data via OAI-PMH, Highwire Press and Eprints tags to other services, - Open discussion — public discussion of scientific papers, - Mobile oriented — access to scientific papers on popular mobile devices. We have obtained the following preliminary results. - CyberLeninka has entered the list of world's top research-oriented repositories (on 41st place) and it is the fourth in the world by visibility of materials in Google Scholar (according to Webometrics, section “Ranking Web of Repositories”). - CyberLeninka contains about 600 Russian and CIS scientific journals and more than 500,000 research papers in all areas of science over the last few years. - CyberLeninka’s web site is visited by more than 100,000 people per day (about 2 million unique visitors per month), that demonstrates the great interest to Russian scientific journals. - CyberLeninka exports the metadata of scientific papers to the open repositories as OCLC WorldCat, ROAR, BASE, OpenAIRE, RePEc, Socionet, etc. via OAI-PMH protocol. - There are more than 5,000 active users of CyberLeninka mobile applications for iOS and Android platforms.
