From Google Translate: "In a previous post , we explained, with a drawing itself, why most often there was no legal obstacle to submit articles in an open archive, including those already published ...

Since the law for a digital republic of 8 October 2016 is even simpler: Article 30 stipulates that scientific articles may be disseminated in free access by their authors, even in the presence of a contract for the transfer of rights.

Obviously, there are some subtleties, otherwise it would not be funny:

  • The drafting of the article must have been financed at least 50% by French or European public funds . This is the case, among others, when a university researcher or CNRS writes in the course of his activity.
  • This provision would apply to all articles, even those published before its entry into force . There is nevertheless a debate on this issue, notably because of the normally non-retroactive nature of a law and in the absence of case law.
  • Unless it is a publication in a journal that is already in free access, the author's distribution can only take place after a certain period of time  : 6 months after publication by the publisher in the field Science, Technology and Medicine - 12 months in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
  • Only articles published in periodicals appearing at least once a year are concerned. Participations in collective works are not, therefore, like the theses or the proceedings of colloquiums, for example. But nothing prevents us from arguing this principle to negotiate from now on in a publishing contract a clause allowing the deposit in open access ...
  • The author may submit only the final version of the accepted manuscript for publication , after the corrections requested by the reviewers, but before the editing for publication by the publisher.
  • It is a right and not an obligation for researchers, but it can become one in the case of a European project like H2020.

So do not hesitate to drop all your articles on Hal-Unice . If, however, you are in doubt, and you really want to be in the fullest legality, no need for a schema this time: Lilliad librarians have developed WillO , a simple and practical online tool to help you determine if You can drop off your items."
