Abstract

Publiée par la Commission européenne, l’étude examine l’évolution économique et technique du marché de l’édition scientifique en Europe. Elle a été commandée dans le cadre du débat public actuel sur les conditions d'accès aux publications scientifiques et sur leur diffusion. Des changements importants se sont produits dans ce domaine au cours des 30 dernières années, en particulier la généralisation de l’utilisation d’internet. L’étude confirme que les revues scientifiques sont essentielles à la diffusion des connaissances scientifiques. Étant donné les sommes élevées investies par les pouvoirs publics dans la recherche, il devient de plus en plus important que les publications des résultats de la recherche soient accessibles à un public le plus large possible. L’étude présente donc un certain nombre de recommandations pour l’avenir, à savoir: •pour le public, un accès garanti aux résultats de la recherche financée par les États, au moment de la publication ainsi qu’à long terme, •la mise en place de conditions égales afin de garantir une concurrence équitable entre les différents modèles commerciaux d’édition, •un classement des revues scientifiques selon leur qualité, qui ne se limitera plus au seul critère de l’excellence scientifique, mais qui tiendra également compte de facteurs tels que la gestion des droits d’auteur, les moyens de recherche et l’archivage, •des tarifications qui encouragent la concurrence sur le marché de l’édition, •l’examen minutieux des principales fusions susceptibles de se produire dans ce secteur, •la promotion des publications électroniques, par exemple en supprimant les mesures fiscales défavorables et en encourageant les financements publics et les partenariats public-privé afin de créer des archives numériques dans des domaines bénéficiant d’un faible investissement commercial.
