The journal Sociologie du travail leaves ELSEVIER for Open Access on Revues.org

The journal Sociologie du travail has terminated the contract it has had with Elsevier since 1999 and is moving to a fully digital form of Open Access on Revues.org.

Issue 59, Volume 1 of Sociologie du travail, entitled “Les syndicats face aux transformations du secteur public”, has just been published on Revues.org. The journal has also been given a makeover. This is a twofold turning point for the journal, which is both breaking with restricted access distribution on Elsevier and switching from print to digital. For Didier Demanière, author of this issue’s editorial, the change “signals a rupture with an international publisher contested for its exorbitant fees and positions the journal in the movement for open access to scientific articles”.

“The arrival of Sociologie du travail on OpenEdition is an important event in our eyes”, observes Marin Dacos, director of the Centre for Open Electronic Publishing (Cléo), which runs OpenEdition. “This is a journal that is an authority in its field and which is joining us and deciding to leave Elsevier, a publishing magnate that for 30 years has contributed to making libraries’ acquisitions budgets skyrocket. We are proud to help it choose open access and to offer it international visibility on OpenEdition.”

The journal has chosen to be published on Revues.org using the Freemium programme, with the HTML format of texts accessible to all readers and the PDF and ePub formats reserved to users affiliated to subscribing libraries and institutions. This formula enables journals to enjoy greater visibility in university networks, while also generating income.

Founded in 1959, Sociologie du travail is one of France’s most longstanding sociology journals. Centred on the field of work, the publication nevertheless remains a generalist journal of sociology, grappling with current issues. The issues published between 2014 and 2016 will gradually be transferred to the new site. The older issues are available on Science Direct, Persée and Jstor.

Upcoming Artstor Digital Library Feature Changes

We’re writing to share some upcoming feature changes which may require you to save some of your work in the Artstor Digital Library. These changes are part of the release of an improved platform that will feature a redesigned interface, streamlined features, and which will run on the same backend technology that currently powers the ITHAKA service JSTOR. This represents a first step toward the longer-term goal of creating an integrated platform experience for users of both the Artstor Digital Library and JSTOR – now both allied services under the ITHAKA umbrella. Learn more about our upcoming release.

  • We will be pausing the upload and metadata entry functions for Personal Collections between June 1st and early September this year. During this time you will be able to share, download, and save your existing images to groups as usual. However, you will not be able to add new images to your Personal Collection or edit any of the text associated with your existing images.
  • Uploading of OIV presentations into Personal Collections will be retired. If you need to share OIV presentations with students, please convert them to PDFs. An enhanced option for exporting your OIV presentations to other formats is being explored and will be available soon.
  • Personal notes and instructor notes are being retired. If you need any information saved in your personal or instructor notes, we recommend copying and pasting this information into your image group descriptions by June 1st.
  • The citation generator and saved citations will be temporarily removed and added back into the Digital Library after the new release. If you have saved citations that you need, please download them before June 1st.
  • Saved searches are being retired.
  • The date filter for search results will be temporarily removed in late May (prior to the release of the new site). It will return, with improvements, as part of the updated site this summer.

Please reach out to us at support@artstor.org with any questions and thank you for your help in making these improvements to the Artstor Digital Library possible!
