Publication on HAL and more

As an author of scientific publications at IMT Mines Albi, you are entitled to guidance by the library throughout the publication process.

  • advice on the choice of scientific reviews in which to publish
  • help with your copyrights
  • guidelines on how to use the HAL application and the upload system for your publications
  • management of your digital identity and online publications visibility

For additional information or individual assistance, please contact either the librarian in charge of scientific publications, or the IST contact person at your research centre.


The library offers its expertise in scientific publishing to assist you in your choice of publications according to various criteria:

  • editorial benchmarks (readers' committee, distribution, predatory publishers, etc.)
  • bibliometric criteria (rank A, H-index, Impact Factor, etc.)
  • national and international requirements (Plan S, National Open Science Plan)
Archiving on HAL

All IMT Mines Albi scientific publications are archived at the library and posted on the HAL IMT Mines Albi institutional portal.

In line with the proactive policy of free access to scientific publications established at national and European level, IMT Mines Albi strongly encourages its authors to post their publications online within its institutional portal.

Any publication with an "IMT Mines Albi" affiliation must be reported by its author(s) to the library, which then archives and reports it. Once the publication is referenced on the portal, we notify you. You may then upload your PDF in a few clicks.

Increasing online visibility of my publications

Faced with the multiplicity of scientific publication platforms and author repositories, the library supports you in taking control of your digital identity and web visibility.

In accordance with your profile, desires and objectives, we help you create and manage your IDs (IdHAL, IdRef, ORCID,...) and online professional information. We can also assist you in editing your personal bibliography, your HAL resume, or in protecting your copyrights on academic social networks.

The researcher ID is not a connection ID, but a key that links you to your publications. Essential for your visibility!
