Since the end of March 2013 Open Access (OA) is a strategical aim of TUHH.
The OA Policy of the TUHH includes as elements of the OA strategy the offering of services to support publishing thorugh the university library as well as the provision of the Institutional Repository of the TUHH, the document server TUBdok for self-archiving pre- and postprints of documents.
In addition starting April 1, 2013, a fund is available for the support of publications in Open Access journals which is financed for three years from the library budget.
Publishing with open access increases the visibility of your research and of the Hamburg University of Technology!

BASE (Bielefeld Academic Search Engine) is one of the largest seach engines world-wide to look for scholarly content available via Open Access.
