OpenEdition is a comprehensive infrastructure for electronic publishing in the humanities and social sciences, created and operated by OpenEdition Center. It brings together complementary platforms dedicated to journals (OpenEdition Journals), books series (OpenEdition Books), research blogs (Hypotheses) and academic announcements (Calenda). In 2019,OpenEdition received more than 6.5 million visits per month from all around the world. OpenEdition’s mission is to encourage the development of high-level electronic publishing on an international scale. OpenEdition was born from a very simple idea: the various actors in academic publishing were being drowned out by the vast ocean of the web and their efforts were being dispersed. Grouped around a central federating platform (OpenEdition) and specialized platforms (OpenEdition Journals, OpenEdition Books, Calenda, Hypothèses), other economies of scale are possible. A critical mass of content, technologies and skills means our role is not limited to publishing academic documents online, but also to offering training in new publishing practices, to reaching out internationally, to developing a sustainable economic model and to implementing regular technological innovations.

Huma-Num is a very large research infrastructure which aims to facilitate the digital turn in Humanities and Social Sciences. To perform its missions, Huma-Num’s organization is based on two pillars:
- consortia, funded by Huma-Num, which are composed of research projects and teams sharing common scientific interests;
- a unique technological device, provided on a national scale and based on a vast network of partners.
This infrastructure offers a variety of platforms and tools to store (HumaNum-Box), process (shared toolbox), share (NAKALA) and link (ISIDORE) research data. Huma-Num is entrusted with France’s participation in two European Research Infrastructure Consortia (ERIC): DARIAH (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities) and CLARIN (Common Language Resources and Technologies Infrastructure). It is also involved in other European projects (H2020) and different international initiatives.
