Pratiques et usages des outils numériques dans les communautés scientifiques en France

Abstract : The State of Open Science Practices in France (SOSP-FR) survey was carried out between June 2020 and September 2020. It aims to question the practices of digital tools and about research data in French scientific communities. The questionnaire consists of 38 questions divided into 9 themes. The questions concern practices already fixed and those emerging uses such as open peer review or data papers. The number of respondents was 1089, making possible a fairly representative disciplinary, gender and status analyse of the state of employment in higher education and research in France. In this survey, the focus on the respondents’ work context, defined as lonely or collective, highlights differences in practices, particularly in the archiving of research data and in the uses, especially in access to information, of research infrastructures or institutional digital tools. Researchers’ social networks seem to influence the practices and uses related to Open Science in France. By distinguishing uses and practices according to two approaches, one where Open Science is associated with a human dimension, including opening up research results to the wider range and the other where the technical dimension, including the use of a free digital environment, is what prevails, the results lead to disciplinary distinctions, but also to distinctions in terms of status, generation and work context. The outcomes are equivalent regarding the arrival of new software and programming languages, as we have been able to see with to R, Excel and Python. Acculturation to the challenges of Open Science is achieved through collectives, which are more accessible in research environments than in the research-teaching pair.
