is a major French-language web portal, founded in 2005, containing scholarly materials in the humanities and social sciences. Much of the collection is in French, but it also includes an English-language international interface to facilitate use by non-francophones. Primary research areas include communications, economics, education, geography, history, literature, linguistics, philosophy, political science, law, psychology, sociology, and cultural studies.

The site originated with materials from four major publishing houses: Éditions Belin, De Boeck, La Découverte and Érès.[1] Bibliothèque nationale de France joined in 2006. It has since expanded to include publications from multiple other publishers, including extensive collections of French-language journals – 150,000 journal articles and 4000 books.
