Résumé

As a 2016 CNRS Innovation Medal laureate, Marin Dacos looks back on his career. This computer scientist, initially educated as a historian, heads the French centre for open digital publishing (or Cleo, Centre pour l'édition électronique ouverte). Having pioneered open access on line publishing, he is now one of the leading voices of digital humanities. He founded the Cleo, a joint service unit which employs a team of fifty people. The Cleo has developed the OpenEdition portal which pools four electronic resource platforms for the humanities and social sciences. (Revues.org with over 400 journals, Hypothèses with 1500 academic blogs or research logbooks, Calenda and its event calendar and OpenEdition Books, a digital book collection). It has reached leadership in the digital distribution of research work. The OpenEdition portal boasted 64 million visits in 2015.
