International Open Access Week is already upon us!

This year’s theme of “Open in Action” is all about taking concrete steps to open up research and scholarship and encouraging others to do the same.

Open Access Week, a global event now in its eighth year, is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

France’s researchers take back control of their scientific output

In France, the law entitled LA CIRCULATION DES DONNÉES ET DU SAVOIR for a digital Republic was adopted after approval by the Senate.

This law is particularly important for researchers and scientific article author on two aspects:
-  Article 17, which legalizes open access to scientific publications and data, regardless of contracts signed with publishers
-  Article 18bis which allows Text and Data Mining

In particular, Article 17 which focuses on open access, gives a central role to the researcher as author of scientific articles, allowing them to give access to their work in the context defined by the law.
Along with this, the exploitation of the data released in open access by the author is also authorized and regulated.
