A comprehensive portal for the French social sciences

Launched in 2001 as a partnership of the Centre national d’enseignement à distance and the sociological sections of the Ecole normale supérieure Lettres and sciences humaines de Lyon, LiensSocio has become the major French portal for social sciences. Its function is mostly as a gateway to French scholarly resources on the Internet, although it provides also current news, information on research publications and seminars and conferences organized all around France (through Calenda) . The site content is fully and freely retrievable by accessing the different portal sections, where the webresources – very useful for PS researchers and students – have been divided under 23 disciplines (from anthropology to statistics and architecture) and more than 50 subjects. The last version of the website better organizes the different components of the Liens Socio project, such as Agora/Sciences sociales, that exists since 2009, and Lectures, the electronic journal of review of reviews in the social sciences launched in 2011. Source entries have been selected, classified, and evaluated with a simple popularity-based rating system, although they are also rated for their content richness. The homepage is quite dynamic and rich in visual and textual elements.The risk of information overload is avoided by a careful design based on three columns. Also provided are several search options, with effective results, along with a free email newsletter subscription and a RSS feednews.
