Publications scientifiques : l’open access va entrer dans la loi – Educpros

According to a new bill introduced to the French Council of Ministers on December 9, 2015, authors of new scholarly articles arising from publicly-funded research may make them open access through repositories after an embargo (6 months in the sciences, 12 months in the social sciences and humanities). Apparently the bill would allow this regardless of the contracts authors signed with publishers. The bill permits green OA in this sense but does not require it.
