The Royal Academy of Belgium have recently published "Open Science, the challenge of transparency" by Bernard Rentier.

The book has been released simultaneously in a print version and in an Open Access online version.

"A new way of conceiving scientific research, open science, was born with the computer revolution. In the wake of Open Access (free access to the results of publicly funded research), it goes hand in hand with the great ideal of transparency that is now invading all spheres of life in society. This book describes its origins, perspectives and objectives, and reveals the obstacles and obstacles due to private profit and academic conservatism."

After a year rich in Open Access events such as the change of copyright law in Belgium, the adoption of the Open Access Decree of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and the 10-year anniversary of ORBi, it is up to the members of the ULiège to share their Open Access story.

 


ORBi (Open Repository and Bibliography)

In may 2007, the ULiège's Administrative Board (joined in June 2007 by the FUSAGx) decided to create an institutional repository and defined a strong institutional self-archiving policy to increase the visibility, accessibility and impact of the University's publications (ULiège mandate).

This decision led to the official launch, in November 2008, of the ORBi platform including both the Academic Bibliography and the Institutional Repository of the Wallonia-Europe University Academy.
