Open Access & Archiving

Open Access 

DMTCS is an open-access peer-reviewed journal which relies on an author-free model.

All DMTCS articles are deposited in an open-access repository such as HAL or ArXiv.


All content is freely available without charge.

French institutions CNRS, Inria and Inrae sponsor the OA Episciences platform, which allows for a model without author or reader fees.


HAL – permanent archiving of files stored in the open archive

Text files in .pdf format and image files in .jpeg format included in submitted publications are now automatically sent to the National Computer Centre for Higher Education (CINES) as part of a long-term archiving initiative (read the agreement).

Further reading, in French: Special Issue "Archivage numérique pérenne".
