ISSN Conference 2018: an international perspective on free access to the scientific communication: success and defiance = an international perspective on open access in scholarly communication: achievements and challenges. Available at: < https://webcast.in2p3.fr/container/issn-conference-2018 >. 

On April 26, a day was held at the École Nationale d'Administration in Paris, under the title Une perspective internationale sur le lliure access dans la communication scientifique: succès et défis [An international perspective on easy access in scientific communication: successes and challenges], addressed various aspects related to the phenomenon of open access. The session was organized by the International Center of the ISSN, the ISSN code assigning agency for the univocal identification of magazines. Those of us who were not lucky enough to travel to Paris to attend the conference can at least check the videos of the various presentations .

The program consisted of an inaugural lecture by Jean-Claude Guédon, professor at the Université de Montréal, followed by eight presentations, each of which can be consulted separately. Below we will briefly summarize the various interventions.

The Guédon conference presented a historical tour of the evolution of the scientific edition market that started with the changes that took place after the end of World War II: the emergence of private publishing houses, the creation of indexes of citations by Eugene Garfield and the subsequent identification of a set of "nuclear" journals with the consequences of the subscription price of these titles, the digitalisation of the production and distribution of journals, the Budapest statement, the appearance of megajournals , etc.

Next, Mikael Laakso of the Hanken School of Economics (Finland) made an analysis of the evolution of open access publication between 2010 and 2016. The longitudinal analysis was accompanied by a more methodological part which made special emphasis on the use of ROAD ( The ISSN Directory of Open Access Scholarly Resources ) as a source of useful information for conducting open access studies...."
