SPIRE is Sciences Po's institutional repository.

It aims to be the comprehensive database for the research produced by Sciences Po academic community, its researchers and its Ph.D students. It displays research articles, working papers, books, book chapters, reports, discussion papers, research blogs and more.

These publications have permanent url, rich and interoperable metadata, that increase visibility and access.

On the home page, in the latest publications section, we chose to highlight books and edited books, as well as open access publications.

SPIRE is a nonprofit service, that helps scholars, researchers, and students discover, use, and build science upon a wide range of content in a trusted digital archive.

It provides free access to citations or full text of these publications when permitted by copyright, pursuant to article 30 of the “Loi pour une République numérique” and the (French) national plan for open science, and compliant with the ERC policy.
