Build added value on an open archive HAL-related applications


The HAL open archive ( is the common platform, shared by the French academic community, for the open access dissemination of the scientific production. At the beginning of 2018, it has disseminated more than 480 000 documents: published and not published documents (journal articles, conference papers, theses), images and videos. HAL uses repositories which can be consulted freely on the AureHAL site and HAL API website. Hal repositories take into account other institutional data bases. Since its creation in 2000, the Centre for Direct Scientific Communication (CCSD) has developed and maintained the platform. One of the goals of the CCSD has always been to develop the interoperability and to boost the openness of scientific publication, but also to offer to the researchers a fluid environment and workflow to help them with their different activities. Open archives must seize all the innovations that can facilitate and develop, both traditional and emerging uses. That is why it has developed an application for the management of scientific conferences: Sciencesconf ( The platform facilitates the different steps of the organization of a conference, from the submission of the communications until the edition of the proceedings, passing by the configuration of the reviewing and the program by topics. It also offers a set of features. Some of them are customizable by the administrators: appearance of the website, management of the registration and the submissions, automatic transfer of the acts to HAL. The hosting platform of epijournals, Episciences ( is a complete tool for managing journals focused on peer-reviewing and disseminating its contents. It also allows researchers and academic editing societies to try out an innovating model of open access publications: the author proposes its article by submitting it on an open archive (HAL but also arXiv, CWI) to one of the journals hosted on Episciences. Its manuscript is immediately in open access and, once accepted and published, the first version submitted in HAL is updated with the new version. Epijournals can be either new titles created from scratch, or existing ones wishing to join the platform with a compatible publishing policy. The authors are not requested to sign restrictive agreements and retain their copyrights on their papers. This project proposes an alternative to existing economic models, without competing with traditional publishers. It offers a reliable, easy and fast open access publishing venue, which is free for readers and authors. Finally, the HAL data are displayed in a triple store intended for the exchange of data on the web. portal gives access to the database containing structured data in RDF format. This RDF endpoint, contains all the data available in the open archive HAL as well as in AuréHAL. Proposed data schemas and access to the interrogation interface already allow multiple exploitation possibilities (research, management of scientific production ...) of the whole HAL database The poster will present these three applications and their interactions with the open archive HAL that expand the possibilities of exploiting an open access publishing environment for the researcher, the reader, the institution.
