The National Open Science Plan (2018) mandates open access for publications and for data from project-funded research.
The plan is structured around three axes:
- Generalizing open access to publications (open archives and open access publications);
- Structuring and opening research data;
- To be part of a sustainable, European and international dynamic (in particular to make data FAIR [“Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable”]).
In the Guide to Open Science, you will find general information on Open Science (brief history, legislation, the various debates underway, etc.), but also practical advice on publishing in open access, how to avoid predatory publishers, how to open your data, where to deposit them, your copyright, distribution licenses, etc. This guide is updated regularly.
