Search for publications

The search bar on the home page allows you to search:

  • In all fields 
  • The title, abstract and keywords
  • Among the authors and contributors

You can then filter the results in the sidebar that appears on the left.

The databases allow you to browse:

  • The list of document types and their associated publications
  • The list of disciplines and their associated publications

Predefined searches allow you to access:

  • The complete list of references
  • The list of references with an Open Access full text
  • The list of recently added references

Whatever the type of search you use, you can always refine your results via the list in the sidebar.

Read publications

The ORBi user can read, download, copy, distribute and print the work as long as he/she agrees: 

  • To indicate, in any quotation, the source of the work and the name(s) of the author(s)
  • Not to modify, transform or adapt the work without explicit authorisation from the author
  • Not to use the work for commercial purposes
  • Not to use the work in such a way as to harm its exploitation in other forms
And the copyright?

Contrary to popular belief, Open Access to documents does not change the rights that an author has over their publication. It is therefore not possible to do whatever you want with Open Access documents.

If the file is licenced under Creative Commons

The user of ORBi must comply with the conditions prescribed by the CC license under which the document is published. LEARN +

If the file is not available in Open Access

Restricted documents are only accessible to identified UMONS staff members. The documents in private access are visible and accessible only to the authors and co-authors of the reference and cannot be used by third parties.
