Abstract (in English)

The ICOMOS Documentation Centre has carried out a survey among professionals in the field of conservation of historic monuments and sites, in order to know their needs and practices in terms of scientific and academic research and the subsequent dissemination of their works. In this report we explain the results of this study, which reveal some general tendencies in the behavior of the heritage professionals. Professionals prefer to use traditional publications (printed journals and books) although the use of online publications is increasing compared to printed format, particularly online scientific journals and specialized websites. However, open archives and open access repositories are not yet well established in this particular scientific field. The study reveals that most of the authors publish the results of their research in a traditional format: printed journals, books and printed conference proceedings. Online Internet publishing is not very widespread, although the number of online scientific journals in this field has greatly increased in recent years. Overall we can say that heritage conservation professionals are not very familiar with either the open access movement or open archives or repositories. Only a small minority of participants say that they know and use open archives and publish in open access online journals. There are not yet many repositories or open archives in this particular scientific field apart from those set up by universities and teaching institutions. The same phenomenon can be noticed with open access scientific journals although their number has considerably increased over the last few years. In addition to the lack of knowledge on the subject, or perhaps precisely because of it, we sense a certain fear among authors of depositing their articles in an online open access repository which is open to the whole international scientific community. Two of the main worries concern the risk of plagiarism and copyright aspects. In the report, we shall try to dispel these doubts. It is in this context that we develop our proposition to create the ICOMOS Open Archive: Eprints on Cultural Heritage, a subject and institutional repository in the field of heritage conservation (historical monuments, landscapes and sites); This open archive will take the form of an institutional repository where all the scientific documentation produced by ICOMOS will be deposited and centralized. It will also serve as a subject repository open to the rest of the international scientific community in the field of cultural heritage conservation. Once the archive is up and running, it will be open to all international, national, regional organizations, institutions, universities, etc from the cultural heritage field as well as to any individual professionals interested in depositing their articles and publications in the archive: It will be self-archiving so that once they have been registered on the system, authors can deposit their publications by themselves. The aim is to create a World archive specialized in the conservation, restoration, protection, management and enhancement of cultural heritage (historic monuments, sites and landscapes), in order to facilitate the dissemination and exchange of technical and specialized information among the scientific community.

Le Centre de Documentation de l’ICOMOS a mené une étude parmi les professionnels de la conservation des monuments, paysages et sites historiques, afin de connaître leur besoins et pratiques en termes de recherche de documentation et de diffusion du résultat de leurs recherches scientifiques et académiques. Les résultats de cette étude, présentés dans ce rapport, révèlent certaines tendances générales dans le comportement des professionnels du patrimoine.
