The free access to scientific publications is an important problem since the price to access to scientific papers is suffciently large to be a barrier in developing countries and even to laboratories and research centers with limited funding.  If various efforts are done (DOAJ Directory of Open Access Journals for instance), this subject is a hot topic since it is closely related to the scientific edition world and to the implicit lnk which do exist between editors, commercial databases and system of research evaluation.  In a recent document (version 2.1 February 2016) the European Community issued some guidelines related to this topic.  The two versions of the document English and French  will provide the necessary information to the users.
