Could I remove a deposit from HAL ?

As explained in the HAL homepage any deposit is definitive, no withdrawals will be made after the on-line posting of the publication because of the sustainability of our links.

HAL offers the sustainability of the submissions’ links by ensuring that URLs like : or will always redirect to the document, regardless of the developments of HAL.
Nevertheless, the sustainability of the links which contain a file name relies on the condition that the file will not be deleted.

However, if your article is due to be published later, we could apply an embargo on your file. This way the paper itself is not accessible but the bibliographic record remains on our website.

If your submission requires a correction you can ‘Modify the metadata’ or ‘Deposit a new version’ from the My space/My deposits menu.
