Open Science

Open Science Group
The laboratory is firmly committed to the Open Science movement. This evolution of practices is a major and current issue for the disciplines represented in the laboratory. This movement is important for ethical reasons of making our results available (in particular open publication models) for the entire scientific community but also for the society as a whole. It is also crucial for the science itself. Indeed, we are convinced that the essential ingredients of scientific reproducibility (and therefore of the credibility of science) are the publications on the one hand of the datasets on which our discoveries are based and on the other hand of the treatments and analyses leading to results. In addition, a particularity of the laboratory is to develop this dynamic by opening up the development process for instrumental devices. Therefore, two members of our laboratory are part of various committees of the National Committee for Open Science.

The role of the “Open Science” group is to promote this approach of openness as well as to help the members of the laboratory to further improve their practices in this field.

What are the advantages of integrating open science into your research?
-> Disseminate more widely the scientific production of the laboratory
  • Save time by depositing in HAL: a unique and sustainable deposit
  • Increase the scientific impact of the work: more visible, they are more cited
  • Widen the visibility of the publications of your lab: a single entry for indexing in all search engines.
-> Publish in open access -> Manage your research data
  • Comply with the requests of research funders (in French) (ANR, H2020, etc.)
  • From the start of projects, consider the data life cycle, and provide a Data Management Plan for this data (DMP)
  • Focus on the appropriate platforms and tools for data storage, processing and dissemination
