Good news! An English version of ORBi is now available

The public interface as well as the submission process (accessible to ULg members) are both available in English from now on. More visibility can thus be given to the ULg's publications on international websites.

We will also focus in the coming weeks on a larger referencing of ORBi in search engines and specialized Open Access sites.
