Open science at CNRS

The international movement for open science, initiated more than 30 years ago, has been growing at an unprecedented rate since the web made it possible on a global scale with reasonable costs. The dissemination of scientific production on the Internet, its identification and its archiving remove the barriers of sustainable access without questioning the protection of personal data, nor the protection of intellectual property. It is about being "open as much as possible, closed as much as necessary". Open science does not only promote a cross-cutting approach to sharing science results. By opening up data, processes, codes, methods or protocols, it also offers a new way of doing science.

The implementation of the CNRS roadmap for open science aims to accelerate the process towards open science through concrete action.
