Brief description of your activity focus
Hypotheses, an international platform for academic communication contributes to open access dissemination of research results
Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
We would like to participate in a project consortium in order to contribute to open access dissemination of research results.
This offer enables the promotion of published research results in open access and supports the academic team for the implementation of a publication strategy according to open access requirements under Horizons 2020 (art.29.2 of the Model Grant Agreement).
Hypotheses is the largest international platform for academic communication dedicated to the open access dissemination of research information in the humanities and the social sciences (“research blogs”).
Hypotheses hosts over 800 research blogs edited by a community of 1200 researchers generating 1 million monthly visits from all over the world. It expands at the rate of 200 sites per year.
Web publishing tools have been developed with an international academic community and are particularly well suited for research projects. Hypotheses Scientific Committee guarantees the quality of content hosted by the platform.
The platform supplies research teams with simple and flexible web tools, ensuring maximum impact for the information and publications they publish, while guaranteeing preservation of academic contents in an international context:
Easy to use: Wordpress software used by Hypotheses is the first content management system on the web (20% of websites). A team of community managers supports and helps the editors of hosted blogs through training, documentation and assistance by mail.
Flexible: there are a number of options for customizing the layouts of blogs and their graphic appearance, along with several available editorial options (scrolling banner, pages, widgets, etc.).
Maximum impact: Research results benefit from high visibility on the web thanks to referencing in the main specialised and non-specialised search engines: Google, Google Scholar, etc.... Content is distributed in libraries through a partnership with Ebsco. Each blog has its own ISSN. Hypotheses enables research teams to reach out a non-academic readership in the political, economic and social sectors. In accordance with the European Commission’s objectives, the platform aims to integrate academic discourse in society.
Preservation: Research results remain available after the end of the project, as Hypotheses offers a guarantee of durability and archiving over the long-term thanks to a partnership with the Bibliothèque nationale de Frances legal deposit service and the Centre Informatique National de l’Enseignement Supérieur (long-term archiving in XML).
International: Hypotheses is more than a platform; it is also a genuine community of 1200 contributors and one million readers per month, based in a number of mainly European countries, who have an ongoing scientific conversation in several languages. The English, German, Spanish, French and Portuguese-speaking communities are the most structured and representative.
Hypotheses increases the visibility of research results at the European and international level.
The package is composed of two parts:
1/ a) a website ready to use (set up, hosting, dissemination, indexation, preservation, and technical support)
b) Training sessions on Wordpress (learning how to start and maintain a site) for the communication manager and the academic team.
2/ Training session on Open Access publication strategies in Horizons 2020
● overview and history of open access at the international level,
● legal framework and policies of funding agencies,
● Best practices for open access publication (Gold open access),
● Landscape of open archive repositories (Green open access).
