Genevieve Fioraso, French Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, had declared just 18 months ago:

"Au regard de l'importance des enjeux, sur les plans scientifique, économique et sociétal, le gouvernement français réaffirme son soutien au principe du libre accès à l'information scientifique."

Or

"Given the high stakes - scientific, economic and societal - the French government reaffirms its support for the principle of open access to scientific information."
