From Google Translate: "Since the beginning of 2017, Tracés. Revue de sciences humaines is now fully accessible online (Open Access) on the platform publisher Revues.org OpenEdition ( 1 ), while remaining available in paper version thanks to ENS Editions. Issue 32 of the journal, 'Moving the frontiers of work', is the first issue to be released simultaneously in print and in open access for the digital version. For this reason, we had to abandon one of our historical digital publishers, Cairn ( 2 ). This change is the result of a long process that we want to say a few words.
The journal Tracés was part of the debates on open access to academic publications that have emerged in France following the European Commission's recommendation of 17 July 2012 and which resumed around the discussion of the draft law for a digital Republic Of 2015 ( 3 ). Schematically, two positions emerged from these debates. On the one hand, private publishers, supported by certain social and human sciences journalists, have called for restricting access to research by maintaining a paying barrier to guarantee the remuneration of actors in the field. Which are essential for the development of scientific work."
