A gateway to a French collection of scientific journals

Launched in 1999 as an offspring of the Département des sciences de l’homme et de la société, under the scientific management of CNRS, is the oldest collection of France’s online journals. It actually collects more than 30 0 reviews and 22 book-collections. Directly and independently developed by the scientific community as an entry point to social sciences references, aims at improving accessibility to these journals by gathering them in a single and consistent environment, and also by widening the partnership with several French institutions (École nationale des chartes, Maison méditerranéenne des sciences de l’homme, Centre de communication scientifique, several universities, etc.). This website features a specialized search engine for the social sciences (In-extenso, now called OpenEdition), which covers resources selected and collected by another affiliated (and directly linked) website, l’Album des Sciences Sociales. While each of them has its own characteristics, taken together these tools provide a powerful instrument to browse and search the research field in French. The section called “In-extenso” provides also a second search space covering journal titles and abstracts of about 200,000 articles, while over 1,000,000 webpages are regularly indexed. The entire reference material, as well as any other content, is freely and fully accessible. OpenEdition now includes two more projects, Calenda, the social science calendar, and, a publication platform for academic blog.
