        Subject: Sociologie du travail leaves ELSEVIER to Open Access on Revues.org

Dear colleagues,

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.


Best regards,

Sociologie du travail joins Revues.org and chooses Open Access

*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
 http://sdt.revues.org/502 , 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.
