Electronic Publishing

Secondary publishing service

For many publications there is the chance of secondary publishing with Open Access, to increase distribution and visibility of your research results.

TU Darmstadt supports with their Open Access-Policy the aim to preferably make all publications of TU members available for publicity and to support the distribution of scientific knowledge.

Our secondary publishing service addresses all members of TU and includes:

  • Legal control and requirements for secondary publishing
  • Approaching publishers so that necessary rights can be obtained
  • Consulting regarding open licenses
  • Publication at TUprints, TU’s own repository
  • Enrolment in library catalogue

What we will need:

  • A list of all publications with Digital Object Identifier (DOI) or, if not available, in RIS or Bibtext format
  • Declaration for transfer of rights for secondary publishing
  • If available: your ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID)
