Inria and Open Science

In practice

Inria and Open Science In practice Inria considers that it is not up to publishers to define the conditions of dissemination of scientific publications, whereas researchers, research organisations and support agencies ensure the implementation and funding of the essential stages (research, writing, peer review, dissemination of results) of knowledge production. The obligation to deposit is therefore uniform regardless of the scientific publisher and its stated policy, particularly with regard to embargoes. In line with its policy of open dissemination of research results, and in the absence of the signature of a publishing contract explicitly excluding deposit in open archives, Inria's position is therefore to assume the systematic submission of the full text in author's version after peer review of articles accepted in conferences or journals and as soon as possible.. See the official statement (FR)

In order to ensure the best possible compromise between a maximum reuse of the published contents and the guarantee of a correct attribution of the results to their authors, Inria recommends the use of the Creative Commons licence with Attribution (CC-BY) for any deposit made in HAL.

The publication through and through

In the life cycle of a publication, we generally distinguish the following phases:
Author's version: corresponds to any text whose content was directly produced by the authors. This includes both the initial manuscript and its various revisions, as well as the manuscript submitted for review to a conference or journal.
Initial manuscript: the first form of the author's version released for open access.
Submitted manuscript: first author's version submitted to a conference or journal for peer review.
Revised manuscript after peer review: the last author's version as transmitted to the conference or journal after the peer review process.
Editor's version: a document that may be formatted by the conference or journal editor and distributed by the editor.

Inria has supported open science since 2005
