Commitment to open science and free access to scientific publications

Sorbonne Université is committed to open science and free access to scientific publications. Its researchers are encouraged to file their publications in the HAL Sorbonne Université open archive as soon as they are published.

To support research staff, the Publications & Open Access Department of the Sorbonne Université Library answers questions relating to the publication of their work, its open access dissemination, and offers training and awareness-raising activities on the issues, tools and best open science practices.

Deposit a publication with the HAL Sorbonne Université

By mutual agreement, Sorbonne Université, its research staff and doctoral students agree to respect a charter concerning free access to publications. By depositing the full text of any article in the open archive HAL Sorbonne Université as soon as it’s published and then referencing the author’s other types of publications, research staff and PhD students contribute to the open access dissemination of their publications. Sorbonne Université supports them by facilitating the depositing of publications, by ensuring their long-term archiving and by training the University community in the best practices of open access.

The Sorbonne Université Charter on free access to publications provides the following:

  • An awareness of the academic community of the societal and scientific issues of open access and open science 
  • Local transposition of national policies for the implementation of open access and the facilitation of the depositing and reporting of publications in HAL Sorbonne Université
  • Supporting research staff and doctoral students in the publication process.
  • The promotion of "bibliodiversity" in the spirit of the Jussieu Call. 

The research staff and doctoral students of Sorbonne Université commit themselves to:

  • Act in favour of open science and free access to publications in the exercise of their various responsibilities 
  • Check the adequacy of publishing contracts with the Sorbonne Université's policy on open access.
  • Privilege open access over a hybrid publication when an article is subject to publication charges (Article Processing Charges)
  • Create and use IdHAL and ORCID identifiers that allow them to unambiguously identify themselves as authors of their publications and promote the visibility of their scientific production.

The international Research Data Law Summit, was held at Sorbonne University on Monday, 27 January 2020. This initiative brought nine major networks of intensive research universities together from the key regions of the world. It was the occasion to sign the "Sorbonne Declaration" on Research Data Law. This text energetically affirms the desire of universities to share their data while resolutely calling on governments to adopt a clear legal framework to regulate this sharing and to provide the means to implement it.

Co-organised by Sorbonne University, the Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA) and the University College of London (UCL), this data summit is unprecedented in its scope: nine networks representing over 160 of the world's leading research-intensive universities. And so too is the ambitious message it sends to the international scientific community, research funders and governments through the "Sorbonne Declaration" that will be signed there. This framework document, designed to promote the sharing and proper use of data, calls on the public and private research community to sign up to this commitment. It also requires governments and research funders to shoulder their responsibilities to provide universities with the financial means and the appropriate legal framework to open up data.

This is an essential issue for the quality and transparency of research. It is also a crucial economic issue: financed largely by public money, research data represent tens of billions of euros worldwide. The aim is therefore to make it accessible to accelerate scientific discoveries and economic development. In Europe, for example, according to a PwC report [1] produced by the European Commission, sharing and better management of research data would save €10.2 billion a year, with the potential for an additional €16 billion in added value from the innovation generated, according to a PwC report [2].

The participants are driving this change by proposing concrete solutions to restore confidence in public research and speed up the development of knowledge and the economy.

The signatory networks:

The Sorbonne Université Library and the Doctoral Training Institute are committed to implementing the systematic training of scientific personnel, especially young researchers, in Open Science.

Training in Open Science issues

The content of these training courses aims to provide an understanding of the context of scientific publishing in which the principles of Open Science emerge; to raise awareness of the different aspects and challenges of Open Science policies in the European and global scientific landscape and at Sorbonne Université; and finally to raise awareness of good practices and different options for making its work and research data freely accessible, particularly to respond to calls for proposals.

Training in the depositing of publications in HAL

The objective of these modules is to understand how to use the HAL Sorbonne Université portal to deposit works as soon as they are published. In practice, participants are trained in the legal conditions of the open access repository and in the use of the portal to implement this repository. The different aspects of the HAL are presented: authors' affiliations, interactions with PubMed, PubMed Central, arXiV and OpenAIRE, complementary tools (IdHAL, CV HAL, AureHAL), among others.

Accompagnement à la rédaction du DMP

La bibliothèque propose un accompagnement personnalisé à la rédaction du data management plan. Des séances peuvent être organisées à la demande pour un laboratoire. Des rendez-vous individuels, en présentiel ou à distance, peuvent également être prévus pour aider à la rédaction des trois versions du DMP. La bibliothèque administre l’outil DMP OPIDoR, qui permet de rédiger des DMP en équipe, et peut en faire des présentations.

The faculty of medicine is closed to the public and operates according to a business continuity plan (research, pedagogy, administrative) since Monday, March 16, 2020. The closure of the faculty to the public effectively results in the cancellation of all courses in face-to-face. Research activities and vital administrative activities are maintained, under the conditions specified by the university administration in the Business Continuity Plan. Beyond the end of classroom lessons, university libraries are closed. The situation is constantly changing, staff and students are invited to consult their emails, the university intranet and the FAQ to stay informed.

All users (students and staff) have access to more precise information on a dedicated page:
