[From Google's English] "In February, several messages are crossed in mailboxes around the issues of Open Access (open access), reflecting clearly contradictory positions facing a European recommendation . It was adopted in July 2012 and was in line to open the results of scientific research publicly funded access. The first call , came from Cairn portal worried about the consequences of free provision too fast, and pleaded for a special regime for journals in the humanities and social sciences to enable them to defer as long as necessary this opening. At the time of its release, this motion had collected signatures from 85 reviews SHS. A few days later, a forum entitled 'Who's Afraid of open access?' was published in Le Monde while a second call by Open Edition invited journals not to sign the first motion, arguing that s 'there was a calculation too short term gains against the potential scientific, educational and, ultimately, to the democratization of access to knowledge.' The 'I love Open Access' website in turn collected signatures [1] ...  The debate however, is not new ...  SHS represent a strong social demand. For Marin Dacos like SHS 'interpret our societies, cultures, our past and our relation to the present condition, appetite citizen knowledge is shared, for example, 28.5 million visits for platforms 'OpenEdition for 2012.'' So what uses are made ​​with respect to protected open content material? An example from a review of the platform: in 2009, 540 downloads, in 2010, 9624 downloads, in 2011, after a stint in open access, downloads 4323 ... The passage full text of the article has not diminished the number of downloads of the article, despite his lifetime online 3 years Interest in text could benefit from this new acccessibilité a longer time ..."

Enabling improbable encounters through the unexpected reader also a direct consequence of Open Access.  brakes are linked to anxiety, ignorance editing tasks, and Marin Dacos to remember that "the issue is not of direct communication." The separation of corporations and communities makes the situation even more complex. Ultimate confusion remains unclear: the online is a cost that can not provide economic assistance to the paper versions [4] ... Several models (can be combined) come into play: the author / payer model sponsorship model the subscription (for a book) and the freemium model. Several routes also: green, gold, and platinum [5] .
