The Second National Plan for Open Science has been issued.
(From the blog) This second National Plan extends the scope to include source code from research, structures actions promoting data sharing and openness through the creation of the Recherche Data Gouv (Gov Data Research) platform, increases the number of transformative levers available to generalise the practice of open science and is divided up into different disciplines and themes. It is firmly attached to a European-wide vision and, in the context of the French presidency of the European Union, proposes to act in favour of open science being effectively taken into account in both individual and collective assessments for research. This involves initiating a process of sustainable transformation in order to ensure that open science becomes a common and shared practice, encouraged by the whole international ecosystem of higher education, research and innovation.
1. Generalise the obligation to publish in open access all articles and books resulting from publicly funded calls for proposals.
2. Support open access economic publishing models that do not require the payment of articles or books processing charges (“diamond” model).
3. Encourage multilingualism and the circulation of scientific knowledge by translating publications made by French researchers.
