OAPEN Foundation is dedicated to Open Access for peer reviewed books. OAPEN Library (www.oapen.org) is a deposit service for the full text dissemination of Open Access books and provides services to publishers and libraries in terms of quality control, deposit and discovery. In addition, OAPEN manages the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB, www.doabooks.org), a discovery service for OA books modelled after the DOAJ.
OpenEdition (www.openedition.org) serves the humanities and social sciences research communities through four publication and information platforms: OpenEdition Books (books series), Revues.org (scientific journals), Hypotheses (research blogs), Calenda (academic announcements). Since 2011, OpenEdition is complemented by a Freemium programme addressing libraries’ specific needs in a variety of formats and services. OpenEdition is developed by the Centre for Open Electronic Publishing (CLEO), a non-profit public initiative promoting Open Access academic publishing, with the support of the main French research institutions: the Bibliothèque scientifique numérique (BSN), the Centre National de la Recherche scientifique (CNRS), Aix-Marseille University (AMU), the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) and Avignon University. In 2012, OpenEdition received the Label Equipex future investment award.
