#OAWeek2020: Final spurt for Hamburg Open Science

Prof. Andreas Timm-Giel, Acting President of TUHH, opens this year’s Open Access Week with a video statement in which he argues that science should be open and FAIR.

Hamburg Open Science started with the aim that research results and data from research institutions in Hamburg, which were created with funds from government research funding, should be freely accessible and easy to find. Open access to scientific knowledge and materials is fundamental in a networked world and shapes the science policy debate. National and international donors such as the European Commission, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the German Research Foundation demand free access to research results and the long-term preservation of research data. With the Hamburg Open Science program, the Hamburg Senate enables universities to participate in current science policy developments and to actively shape the cultural change in science towards more transparency and openness.

Virtual Walk-in Service of Stabi: E-Media also for TUHH members

Electronic media will be delivered to your home via e-mail.

The Hamburg State and University Library has adapted its services for the period of the corona pandemic. For all users* in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region it offers a “Virtual Walk-In” service for electronic media during CoVid-19.

TU members can also use this service if they have a Stabi library card, register online for a new Stabi library card, or place an order with a TUHH e-mail address.

Before the ordering comes the research:

You can find the Stabi e-media in the Katalogplus.

  • With Stabi Library card:
    Log in with your card number and password for access.
  • Without Stabi Library card:
    Register online for a new library card and then send the scanned documents to ausleihzentrum@sub.uni-hamburg.de

Zugang E-Artikel KatalogPlus

You can find more information on the Stabi blog: Recherche nach elektronischen Medien

Prof. Robert Zepf, Direktor der Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Hamburg:
„In der jetzigen Situation ist die Aufgabe der Bibliotheken, verlässliche wissenschaftliche Informationen bereitzustellen, von besonderer Bedeutung. Die neuen Zugriffsmöglichkeiten auf unsere digitalen Ressourcen stellen sicher, dass die Hamburgerinnen und Hamburger trotz Schließung des Bibliotheksgebäudes Zugang zu diesem Wissen haben.“ (Press release BWFG, 30.03.2020)

Thanks to Stabi Hamburg and all colleagues involved!

#OAWeek2019: A Home for TUHH Research Data

Publish research data after project completion? Nowadays, the question is not so much whether but rather where. Because data also feels most comfortable in the right company. A domain-specific repository with similar data and a subject-specific system that corresponds to the standards of its own specialist community and guarantees permanent, standard-compliant storage, provision and processing: This is the optimum for your own research data.

However, this ideal subject repository does not exist for every research data set. There may also be important reasons against storing them outside your own institution.

Since 2019, the library has therefore provided an institutional repository for the publication of research data from the TU Hamburg:

tub.dok becomes TUHH Open Research

TUHH Open Research

Since 2002 tub.dok has been the Open Access Repository at TU Hamburg. Here you can find freely available publications of members of TUHH in full text. The spectrum includes journal articles, conference contributions, reports and, of course, dissertations and postdoctoral theses written at TUHH.

Now additional tasks are waiting for tub.dok and therefore it will be renamed as of today in TUHH Open Research. Continue reading

There’s Cookies, Truffles and Jam again

Sternenbrücke Trüffel und KekseSale on Tuesday, 27.11.18, from 9 am.

Once again, many TUHH hands have tackled Milli Antolagic to help her bake cookies, make truffles and cook jams. On Tuesday, Milli and her team will be in the library at 9 am selling their sweet gifts. As in previous years, the proceeds will go to the children’s hospice Sternenbrücke.

Until now everything was sold out until the early afternoon. Early arrival ensures successful shopping!

In the entrance area of the library it will probably be a bit louder than usual on Tuesday.

Making Your Code Citable

Software development is often an important part of scientific work at TUHH. Many use GitHub to create and share scientific software together. What was missing for a long time was the possibility to clearly reference this software. Only then it can be quoted without problems in scientific publications.

Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) have become the quasi-standard for referencing electronic publications. So what could be more obvious than using DOIs for software? Since 2014 this is possible through the cooperation of GitHub and Zenodo. Zenodo is an open platform for the permanent archiving of research results of almost any kind, operated by CERN and financed by the EU, among others: zenodo.org/features

If you are already active at GitHub, you can connect an existing repository with a Zenodo account. The repository will then be archived on Zenodo and a DOI for the repository is assigned. Further releases are also provided for.

A current example from the Institute of Communication Networks at TUHH:

Sebastian Lindner. (2018, July 16). ComNetsHH/LRE-OMNeT: Publication release (Version v1.0.1). Zenodo. https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1313054

And two more tips about Zenodo:

  1. Use the TUHH-Community on Zenodo for the assignment to the TU: https://zenodo.org/communities/tuhh/ Assignment is also possible at a later date.
  2. Add the ORCID iD (Give credit where credit is due) to the authors, if necessary.

 

p.s. It should not go unmentioned: There is also an alternative repository connection to figshare:
