OpenEdition is a comprehensive infrastructure for electronic publishing in the humanities and social sciences, created and operated by OpenEdition Center. It brings together complementary platforms dedicated to journals (OpenEdition Journals), book series (OpenEdition Books), research blogs (Hypotheses) and academic announcements (Calenda). In 2019, Open­Edition received more than 6.5 million visits per month from all around the world. OpenEdition’s mission is to encourage the development of high-level electronic publishing on an international scale. OpenEdition was born from a very simple idea: the various actors in academic publishing were being drowned out by the vast ocean of the web and their efforts were being dispersed. Grouped around a central federating platform (OpenEdition) and specialized platforms (OpenEdition Journals, OpenEdition Books, Calenda, Hypothèses), other economies of scale are possible. A critical mass of content, technologies and skills means our role is not limited to publishing academic documents online, but also to offering training in new publishing practices, reaching out internationally, developing a sustainable economic model and regular technological innovation

Huma-Num is a very large research infrastructure which aims to facilitate the digital turn in Humanities and Social Sciences. To perform its missions, Huma-Num’s organization is based on two pillars:

  • consortia, funded by Huma-Num, which are composed of research projects and teams sharing common scientific interests;
  • a unique technological device, provided on a national scale and based on a vast network of partners.

This infrastructure offers a variety of platforms and tools to store (HumaNum-Box), process (shared toolbox), share (NAKALA) and link (ISIDORE) research data. Huma-Num is entrusted with France’s participation in two European Research Infrastructure Consortia (ERIC): DARIAH (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities) and CLARIN (Common Language Resources and Technologies Infrastructure). It is also involved in other European projects (H2020) and different international initiatives.

With an outreach across 2 metropolises, 10 towns & cities and urban areas within its region, Université de Lorraine invests wholeheartedly in knowledge production and sharing. It is committed to raising the level of citizens’ educational attainment through intensive research involving both the basic and applied strands. Université de Lorraine resolutely committed itself to the path of Open Science at the beginning of the decade 2010, leading to the first seminar on the subject in 2016. Since then, this commitment has been gradually expanded, with a series of annual colloquia, institutional and financial support for open editorial initiatives, and the adoption of the national archive HAL as the University’s official bibliography in 2018. Since 2019, a dedicated steering committee has been at work, accompanied by three operational committees on open publication, data and software, with the aim of providing researchers with a secure environment to enable them to more easily cope with current developments in the world of research.
