OpenEdition, the electronic resource portal, is launching a call for submissions from university presses, private publishers and learned societies publishing high quality books in the humanities and social sciences who wish to distribute a part of their catalogue in Open Access. OpenEdition offers to digitise, then publish and distribute online in Open Access all or part of publishers’ book catalogue on its dedicated platform, OpenEdition Books. The program is run by the Centre for Open Electronic Publishing (Cléo), a non-profit making institution, financed by the French State. It aims to build an international library for the digital humanities, while encouraging publishers to adopt Open Access in the long term.
Joining OpenEdition Books means:
The Centre for Open Electronic Publishing (Cléo) is a non-profit making public initiative, supported by the Research Ministry (Bibliothèque scientifique numérique) and by four French research institutions: the Centre National de la Recherche scientifique (CNRS), the Université d’Aix-Marseille (AMU), the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), and the Université d’Avignon. It is also financed by the Fondation Calouste Gulbenkian and the Google Grant for Digital Humanities program. Cléo currently offers three complementary publication and communication platforms for the humanities and social sciences:
All these platforms make up the OpenEdition portal which receives nearly 3 million visitors per month by offering content in over ten publication languages from over twenty different countries. Before the end of 2012, the OpenEdition Books platform will also complete this set to form a full-scale digital library for the humanities and social sciences.
In February 2012, Cléo was awarded the Label Equipex future investment award. The international jury and the French Ministry of Research and Higher Education recognised OpenEdition’s capabilities as a strategic domain for research and innovation. Within the framework of this program, OpenEdition will be awarded 7 millions euros over 8 years (2012-2019), and will construct an international library for Open Access publishing and the digital humanities.
The project is supported by the Centre for Open Electronic Publishing (Cléo, Marseille, Paris and Lisbon), in partnership with the Centre pour la Communication Scientifique Directe (CCSD, Lyon), the Laboratoire des Sciences de l’Information et des Systèmes (LSIS-CNRS, Marseilles), the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (CHNM, Washington) and the Open Access Publishing in European Netbooks (Oapen, the Hague).

Founded in Geneva in 1988 within the framework of the Ateliers d’ethnomusicologie, the Cahiers de musiques traditionnelles took over from Cahiers d’ethnomusicologie in 2007. The journal is published annually, and each volume focuses on a theme, to which the top specialists in the discipline of ethnomusicology contribute. These theme issues are complemented by interviews, portraits and reports. The Cahiers is the only French-speaking ethnomusicology journal and, in the last few years, has become an indispensable tool for all music professionals, and a fascinating read for all involved in the music world. Since 1994, the Cahiers d’ethnomusicologie has become the academic organ of the Société Française d’Ethnomusicologie. For the open of the journal’s site, twenty issues are available online, including sixteen on open access in full text.
The aim of InMedia. The French Journal of Media and Media Representations in the English-Speaking World is to study the media and media representations in the English-speaking world. The journal focuses on the press, photography, painting, cinema, television, video games, music, radio and the Internet among other fields of study. It provides a multidisciplinary approach and comparative perspectives. Contributions are welcome from many research areas, including history, economics, political sciences, sociology, aesthetics, anthropology or science and communication studies. For the opening of the site an inaugural issue “Global Film and Television Industries Today” is online in full text in HTML and, via the OpenEdition Freemium program, in PDF and ePub formats.
The Philosophique journal is published once per year and has a dual function: 1. encourage reflection around themes dealt with in the agrégation program; and 2. study the most recent forms and terms to arise in philosophical research. The journal, founded in 1986 on Louis Ucciani’s initiative, is today published by the Presses Universitaires de Franche-Comté. The site opens with the full 1998-2012 collection, i.e. 15 issues, on open access and in full text. All articles are available for consultation in HTML, and for download in PDF and ePub via the OpenEdition Freemium program.
Les Cahiers d’EMAM is an interdisciplinary publication contributing to studies on the Arab world and Mediterranean and their interaction with the rest of the world. The journal studies urban questions and processes of territorial construction and change in their social , economic and political dimensions. The Cahiers d’EMAM is published by the Équipe Monde Arabe et Méditerranée (UMR CITERES) from the université François-Rabelais in tours, and resumes the work of the Cahiers d’URBAMA, published from 1988 (no. 1) to 2000 (no. 15). For the opening of the site, 5 issues are available on open access in full text, the whole of the Cahiers collection (nos. 16-20).
The Revue des sciences religieuses is an academic publication, written and published by the lecturer-researchers of the Faculté de Théologie Catholique de Strasbourg. The journal covers all disciplines of theology, canonical law and religious sciences: exegesis, history, fundamental and dogmatic theology, pastoralism and practice, ethics, philosophy and ecumenical studies.
As Hypotheses expands, its scope is becoming increasingly international, and so the platform is changing. The internationalisation of Hypotheses is an active process: it is not just about hosting bloggers writing in different languages from around the world, but about creating a specially adapted space to facilitate expression for all and exchange between everyone. It is not enough to translate the platform into English, but to respect and articulate the majority of languages in which Hypotheses’ academic bloggers wish to express themselves. It is also an issue of extending and adapting Hypotheses to the specifics of the different academic communities.
It is through this basis that Hypotheses technical architecture, the system of content visibility it hosts and its community management have been modified.
Since September 2011 three linguistic portals have appeared: de.Hypotheses, the German-speaking community portal, es.Hypotheses, the Spanish-speaking community portal and fr.Hypotheses, the French-speaking community portal.
Hypotheses has thus become the platform and gallery for international content.
The linguistic portals also use the aggregation functions until now reserved for Hypotheses: they display, on the homepage and in the upper band, recent posts selected by their own academic committee. Hypotheses now automatically aggregates all posts published on all linguistic portals. Blogs are associated, according to their language, to one or several portals, if the blog is multilingual.
Thus posts published and selected by the academic committee are published on two sites, the main platform and the language portal. The list of blogs collated by language is published on each platform.
Furthermore, linguistic aggregation increases the legibility of the platform and facilitates access to content. Thus we can legitimately expect an increase and diversification in visits, which should become more international.
Finally, Hypotheses bloggers will belong to a genuine international community, thus increasing opportunities for discussion, relationships and discovery.
Thanks to the collaboration of international partners, the hosting and communication tools enjoyed by the French-speaking community, are gradually being translated and implemented in German and Spanish. The “Bloghaus” and “Casa de los blogs” now host the essential posts from La maison des carnets as well as operational documentation. The blogger discussion list now appears in German and Spanish. Finally, teams and academic committees have become more international to editorialise, reflect upon and host these new communities, in the best possible conditions.
Several addresses for browsing the new Hypotheses ecosystem:
Humanistica, the future European DH Association, launches a survey to find out about the digital humanists’ community.
By responding to this survey, you will help the Digital Humanities community discover its extent and diversity, as well as its geographical and linguistic composition. We hope you will be willing to participate in this survey and thus improve the understanding of our community. This questionnaire, which is an initiative of the Centre for Open Electronic Publishing (Cleo) and OpenEdition.org, is a contribution to the Humanistica Project: towards a European association for the Digital Humanities, building on the ideas expressed in the Digital Humanities Manifesto, based on a multilingual approach, and democratic principles (one person, one vote). If you agree with the principles of the Digital Humanities, you can sign it (http://www.humanistica.eu/manifesto). Thank you for your contribution!

From 14-16 March, the Hypotheses.org team will be in Madrid for the public launch of Hypotheses.org’s Spanish-language platform, es.hypotheses.org. Two training sessions in academic blogging will also be organised for the new platform which is already online in its alpha version. The aim of the three days of activities is to introduce Hypotheses.org to the Spanish and Franco-Spanish academic community.
In collaboration with Casa de Velázquez and UNED, we shall be organising a French training session on 14 March followed by a Spanish training session on 15 March. The sessions are made up of an introduction to the issues surrounding academic blogging and a presentation of Hypotheses.org’s special features, followed by practical exercises enabling participants to understand the main functions of academic blogging. The existence of an ongoing blog project is not a pre-requisite for participation in the training sessions.
Thanks to the support of Medialab Prado, the new es.hypotheses.org will be presented Friday 16 March at midday at a session discussing academic blogging practices. The meeting will involve various researcher-bloggers who will share their experiences. The presentation of Hypotheses.org will be included in a discussion of common practices and shared experiences as well as in a more formal presentation of the project. The existence of a special academic blogging platform contributes to making practices more visible and above to their recognition as an integral, accountable part of research activity. The policy of internationalisation aims to make the tool available to other academic communities who contribute to this recognition.
An alpha version of the portal, es.hypotheses.org, currently contains posts from all Spanish-language research blogs on Hypotheses.org. The platform has its own academic council composed of researchers and people involved in the Digital Humanities, and people working with the community’s dynamic tools and supporting Francophone bloggers.
Schedule of events:
(The text below is the follow-up to Scholarly blogs, a space on the side for academic dialogue, part 1, published on this blog on March 2, 2012.)
The encounter between the web and the humanities and social sciences in particular has given rise to a profusion of initiatives, and above all to proposals associating practical and theoretical dimensions. These initiatives have tried to set the foundation for the future of academic writing. This new form of science fiction written by academics on the subject of their own practices has given birth to proposals that attempt to draw the best from digital forms by basing themselves on their own distinctive properties. This has regularly led to complex propositions. Thus in 1999, the book historian, Robert Darnton, proposed a model associating a paper support, with the publication of a short work, and the electronic support, broken down into a pyramid of five levels: detailed argumentation (demonstration features); working documentation (source elements or the interpretation of these sources); theoretical or historiographical considerations, teaching propositions, and exchanges and debates with readers. Other projects are based on different ideas: a “Cognitive Overflow Syndrome” for Valentine Roux, seeking to change scholarly writings using the logicism of Jean-Claude Gardin ; the necessary creation of a scholarly hypertext, so as to connect documents between them—the HyperNietzsche by Paolo d’Iorio. These projects are still at the prototype and experimentation stages. There are also isolated proposals in an editorial world that may appear surprisingly stable in many respects.
The platform for German-language academic blogs de.hypotheses.org is officially launched today. The platform is developped by OpenEdition and the German Historical Institute. It is inaugurated on the occasion of the symposium “Weblogs in den Geisteswissenschaften oder: Vom Entstehen einer neuen Forschungskultur” jointly organised by de.hypotheses.org editorial team, and held in Munich, Germany.
The platform already welcomes nine German-language blogs, representing the diversity of the projects hosted by Hypotheses.org:
de.hypotheses.org is managed by Mareike König, head of the library at the German Historical Institute in Paris. The platform has its own Academic Council and Editorial board. The documentation is a translation by Infoclio.ch. The project is supported by the Stiftung Deutsche Geisteswissenschaftliche Institute im Ausland (DGIA), L.I.S.A. Das Wissenschaftsportal der Gerda Henkel Stiftung, the Institut für Zeitgeschichte der Universität Innsbruck and Hist.net.
OAPEN is pleased to announce a new service for Open Access monographs: the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB). DOAB will provide a searchable index to peer-reviewed monographs and edited volumes published under an Open Access business model, with links to the full texts of the publications at the publisher’s website or repository. The beta version of the service will be made public early spring 2012 and will contain publications of a selected number of academic publishers. OpenEdition, a portal dedicated to electronic resources in the humanities (www.openedition.org), will also take part in the beta phase of DOAB.

“What industrialists might call the ‘traceability’ of products relies on the dependability of Héloïse seated before the trench. It is she the group have elected as guardian of the mission notebook. For each sample, she has note the coordinates of the location, the number of the hole, the time, and the depths of samples; as two colleagues dictate, she has to record all the qualitative data they obtain from each clump of earth before it is consigned to bags.” In his Petites leçons de sociologie des sciences , Bruno Latour sets out to show how scientific data is created. He follows a team of French Institute of Research for Development in Cooperation (ORSTOM) researchers into the heart of the Brazilian forest to study soil samples in an attempt to better understand how forest is transformed into savannah. Latour lifts the lid on how knowledge is produced, and shows the essential role played by notebooks, annotated maps and other improvised gauges of measurement, and how they form a primary representation of the reality under observation. The data from these initial observations is then translated and transformed in controlled conditions across academic networks, from laboratories and their instruments to publications and their calculations, which guaranteeing the validity of the data. In his essay, the sociologist demonstrates, via examples, the ideas laid down in La vie de laboratoire , written with Steve Woolgar: a researcher’s work, and academic discussion in general, always develops in tandem with a very diverse mass of written documentation of which only a very small amount is actually formally published. Before books are published, conference papers read, or articles accepted by peer-reviewed journals, there is a whole army of documentation—measurements, notes, bodies of quantitative data, photographs, procedural records, and field notebooks—that plays an equally important role in the establishment of academic reasoning and in the final publication.

Thanks to the teaching of Jules Vuillemin, Jacques Bouveresse and Claudine Tiercelin, the philosophy of knowledge has been well represented at the Collège de France for fifty years now. Based on the tradition of French rationalism, drawing on philosophies in the German and English languages as well as on styles of analytical thinking, it developed in original way. The web site of La philosophie de la connaissance au Collège de France will be publishing books in both French and English written by the three lecturers, or closely related to their chairs and respective work. This work will be accessible in PDF and ePub via the OpenEdition Freemium program.
This event is co-organized by Assodev-Marsnet and the Centre for open electronic publishing, in partnership with the Alcazar Library and the cerLL. The conference will be held in the St. Charles campus of Aix-Marseille Université main auditorium on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 from 19:00 to 21:30.
