Any academic in the humanities and social sciences community, including researchers and research teams, doctoral students, engineers, library science and documentation professionals, and institutions, can create a blog on the site.
Content published on Hypotheses is free and open to the public. Hypotheses is part of OpenEdition Center, a French public research body also responsible for OpenEdition Journals, OpenEdition Books, and Calenda.
OpenEdition Center is supported by Aix-Marseille University, the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), the School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences, and Avignon Université and is part of the Committee for Open Science (COSO) and the National Plan for Open Science.
OpenEdition has received Équipement d’excellence designation from the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research, and Innovation.
