The CCSD partners with the ABES for the dissemination of theses on the dedicated open archive, TEL. The ABES imports theses via the STAR application since 2009, if the defending university has chosen TEL as its full-text distribution service.

In addition, the CCSD and the ABES work together to improve identifiers alignment (idHAL, idRef, ORCID, RNSR).

The Bibliographic agency for higher education (ABES) provides higher education and research establishments with a set of tools and services dedicated to the reporting and administration of the documentary resources available in their libraries.
