Does MonLabo is functionnal in multisite?

Yes, and it’s getting better. Unfortunately there are few functionalites that do not yet work as attended. Future versions will fix that.

If I want to display publications, what publication third party service should I configure ?

Answer: By default you have to use HAL which is opened to all french-speaking scientific community. If you are in Paris Descartes University, you can use Descartes Publi (please contact author if you have no access to this service).
