UniLaSalle is committed to making science and scientific research accessible to as many people as possible.

UniLaSalle cultivates a proactive Open Science policy to guarantee the widest possible dissemination of the results of its research work, whether for the scientific community (articles and communications in international peer-reviewed journals), or for a wider public, through actions aimed at making science accessible to the greatest number (articles in consumer magazines/supports). The Institute is supported by a Scientific Integrity and Open Science Manager for this purpose.

By 2022, 81% of scientific publications by Lasallian researchers will be freely available to anyone, in their entirety and without restriction.



Created by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI) in 2019, and as part of the National Plan for Open Science (PNSO), the Open Science Monitor measures the percentage and progression of open access publications.

The data used in UniLaSalle's Open Science Monitor comes from a variety of sources, including Web of Science, Scopus, Unpaywall and HAL. Only publications with a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), a resource identification mechanism, are taken into account in the barometer: the data is therefore not exhaustive.

This barometer makes it possible to situate UniLaSalle in relation to scientific production at national level. For this reason, the data used is for the reference year 2019, to facilitate national comparisons.


UniLaSalle intends to strengthen the links between science and society through open and participatory science initiatives.

Our intention is to open up and broaden the processes inherent in research to our main stakeholders, to enable appropriation not only by the scientific community but also, more broadly, by society as a whole. The aim of this principle of sharing and consultation is to advance knowledge globally among all stakeholders, and to encourage the co-construction necessary to implement consultation and reduce the distance between researchers and public opinion.
