Open Science


Dissemination of science is an important part of the laboratory's activities. This is developed in coherence with roadmaps defined at the national and international roadmaps.

2. Local, national and international roadmaps for open science

2.1 International roadmaps

2003: Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities
Berlin Declaration is one of the milestones of the Open Access movement. The Declaration extends the notion of open access to original scientific research results, raw data and metadata, source materials, digital representations of pictorial and graphical materials and scholarly multimedia material.

2016 : The Amsterdam Call for Action on Open Science
The Amsterdam Call for Action on Open Science sets out two main objectives: to provide full open access for all scientific publications by 2020 and to define data sharing and stewardship the default approach for all publicly funded research.

2017: Jussieu Call for Open science and bibliodiversity
The Jussieu Call is aimed at scientific communities, professional associations and research institutions to promote a scientific publishing open-access model fostering bibliodiversity and innovation without involving the exclusive transfer of journal subscription monies to APC payments.

2019The EU's open science policy
It presents 8 ambitions of the EU's open science policy: l'Open Data, l'European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), new generation metrics, mutual learning exercise on open science (altmetrics and rewards), future of scholarly communication, rewards, research integrity & reproducibility of scientific results, education and skills, citizen science.2021UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science
The aim of this Recommendation is to provide an international framework for open science policy and practice. It outlines a common definition, shared values, principles and standards for open science at the international level and proposes a set of actions conducive to a fair and equitable operationalization of open science for all.

2022: Paris Call on Research Assessment
The Paris Call invites reforming the current system of research assessment by taking into account the full range of research outputs in all their diversity and evaluating them on their intrinsic merits and impact. To this end, it calls on research funding organizations, research performing organizations, and assessment authorities to engage in a coalition.

2.2 National and local initiatives

2.2.1 Ministry of Higher Education and Research and Inovation (MESRI)

2018-2021: The First National Plan for Open Science
The National Plan for Open Science announced by Frédérique Vidal on 4 July 2018 makes open access mandatory for publications and for data from project-funded research. It sets up an Open Science Committee and supports major initiatives to structure the landscape for publications and data. Finally, it has a training component and an international component that are essential to the mobilization of scientific communities and to France's influence in this emerging landscape.

2021 - 2024: Second French Plan for Open Science
Open science refers to the unhindered dissemination of results, methods and products from scientific research. It draws on the opportunity provided by recent digital progress to develop open access to publications and - as much as possible - data, source code and research methods.

2.2.2 At CNRS

2019: The CNRS Roadmap for Open Science
The implementation of this roadmap is based on concrete projects, structured around four main objectives:

  • Maintain control over scientific production and reach the objective of 100% of CNRS publications in open access set by the roadmap.
  • Develop a culture of data management/sharing among all the actors in the data life cycle, based on the implementation of the FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable) principles.
  • Develop and promote infrastructures and tools for independent research and analysis of scientific content;
  • Transform the way individual researchers are evaluated.

2.2.3 Université Paris Cité (UPC)

2021: Roadmap of UPC
It sets out the commitments made and actions taken for the three pillars of Open Science at UPC

  • Open access to published research results (open access)
  • Open research data
  • Opening up the codes used to produce or exploit these data (open source)
