Humanities and Social Science Content From OpenEdition Will Be Searchable via EBSCO Discovery Service
From EBSCO, via PR Web:
Content from the French open access publishing platform openedition.org (OpenEdition) will be searchable through EBSCO Discovery Service from EBSCO Publishing. OpenEdition is made up of three community publishing platforms dedicated to the humanities and social sciences. The complementary platforms represent a complete electronic publishing system dedicated to promoting research and open access publishing of tens of thousands of scientific papers.
OpenEdition is an initiative of the Centre for open electronic publishing—Centre pour ľédition électronique ouverte (Cléo)—based in Marseille, Paris and Lisbon, Portugal. Cléo is a laboratory involving the CNRS (the National Centre for Science Research), the University of Provence, the EHESS (the Graduate School of Social Sciences) and the University of Avignon. OpenEdition is the umbrella portal for Revues.org, Hypotheses.org and Calenda.
- Revues.org is a Web platform for more than 300 journals and book series in the humanities and social sciences that is open to publishers, research units and organizations looking to publish quality full-text material online.
- Calenda is the largest European scientific calendar for the humanities and social sciences. Published since 2000, Calenda includes announcements of nearly 16,000 scientific events.
- Hypotheses.org is a platform hosting more than 200 scholarly blogs. The research blogs offer a quick and easy way to report research—a blog-like way to chronicle the work on a given topic.
