From Google Translate: "'The aim is to ensure open access to the results of publicly funded research to enable the free flow of knowledge and thus innovation.' Jean-Claude Marcourt, Minister of Higher Education, continues: 'It is no longer acceptable that only false, fanciful and often dangerous information is accessible without hindrance on the Net. The fruits of scientific research must also be found there and, if possible, with a label of quality and credibility.'
However, what is financed by the public authorities is currently, in most cases, inaccessible to the general public and to public bodies, since access to publications is expensive.
The government delivered a first reading of a text outlining the main lines of the draft.
The legislation in preparation goes further than the drafts elsewhere in Europe: it should link the career development of scientists (researchers and university professors) with an adherence to the new rules of open science."
