Open science in brief
Open science is the practice of making research publications and data freely available. It takes advantage of the digital transition to develop open access to publications and, to the fullest extent possible, to research data.
Generalise Open Access to Publications
Open scientific publishing must become the standard approach as soon as possible. To drive this dynamic, research publications resulting from calls for projects that receive public funding must
be disseminated through open access platforms, whether in journals or books or through an open public repository such as HAL.
Structure Research Data and Make it Available through Open Access
Our ambition is to ensure that data produced by government-funded research in France are gradually structured to comply with the FAIR Data Principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable), and that they are preserved and, whenever possible, open to all.
Be Part of a Sustainable European and International Open Science Dynamic
The success of open science implies developing new basic practices for researchers. This requires defining new skills, developing new training programmes and creating new services.
