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.

What’s new?

Research Data

From now on there is a collection for the storage of research data from TU Hamburg. At first it is available for free data sets < 1GB. This will change in the course of the year. Please contact us if you have any questions or further requirements. We will be happy to talk to you.

With the new layout we want to make your institutes more visible. We hope you like it.
This is a first step on the way to a new research information system for TU Hamburg.
We are looking forward to your feedback: E-Mail-Logo tubdok@tuhh.de

Researcher Profile

You can link your author profile with your ORCID iD and have your publications and research data automatically transferred to ORCID: ORCID in TUHH Open Research

Outlook Research Information System

“TUHH Open Research” includes the Open Access Repository (previously tub.dok), a repository for research data, and will be expanded over the next two years into a Research Information System (FIS) to reflect the research strength of TUHH and make it visible to the outside world. We will keep you up to date and are happy to answer your questions:

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


GitHub describes how it works in just under 10 minutes reading time: Making Your Code Citable
Making Your Code Citable · GitHub Guides

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:

Join us on Hamburg Open Science #Jobs

Update 21.11.17: D-17-200 and D-17-194 contracts until 31.12.2020. Applications until 5.12.17

Hamburg wants Open Science! And we want competent people who work with us on this for the TU Hamburg. Initially for 12 months, but hopefully two more years afterwards.

Deadline for applications is 29.11.2017

With the Hamburg Open Science (HOS) programme, Hamburg is implementing a strategy for the expansion of Open Access and Open Science that has been developed across universities. The University of Hamburg (UHH), the Technical University of Hamburg (TUHH), the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW) and many other universities are involved. From 2018 onwards, implementation will be carried out jointly in the institutions within the framework of the following four programme lines: Open Access publications, research data management, research information systems and the design of digital cultural change.

The TUHH Open Science (TOS) project group is being set up at the TUHH for research data management and research information system. This is also where the HOS research data management program line is managed.

The targets for 2018 are:

  • Conception and implementation of a prototype for a research information system based on the open source software DSpace-CRIS.
  • Conception and implementation of a prototype for an institutional research data repository also based on the open source software DSpace-CRIS.

We are looking for four new research assistants with know-how and a desire for university, open science and the beautiful city of Hamburg with the following focal points:

#OAWeek2017 – tub.dok: Open in order to show your Research

tub.dok is the open access repository of the TUHH for freely available publications of members of the TUHH in full text. We make sure that the publications can be permanently stored and found in various services worldwide.

tub.dok LogoWe are very pleased that we were able to extend tub.dok with three important functions during the International Open Access Week 2017:


ORCID iDNo misunderstandings: With ORCID iD you can clearly assign your research results to your person. You can now also use this for your publications in tub. dok. For this purpose, we have introduced research profiles that you can link to your ORCID iD.

On our ORCID in tub.dok page we have described how this works.

2. Statistics

Beispiel tub.dok-StatistikAnyone who publishes also wants to know how the publication is perceived. We now display the statistics for your documents on tub.dok much more prominently. And behind each button are detailed evaluations by period, region, country or city.

The most popular titles are already on the start page. Older titles have a certain advantage here, of course. :-)

3. Secondary publications

tub.dok: Identifier für Metadatentub.dok offers you a reliable place to publish journal articles from pay-walled journals via the so-called Green Way Open Access.

At the moment this has to be done manually. To make it easier for you to enter the journal data for your article, you can now prepopulate data in tub.dok. Start uploading by entering the identifier. This can be the PubMed ID, the DOI or the arXiv ID. Then the publisher’s data will be transferred to your publication form.

We hope that we will be able to import these articles into tub.dok automatically in the medium term. So far, this has already been possible with the Open Access publisher MDPI.


Nothing is perfect and we can always get better. We look forward to receiving your suggestions, questions and criticism at tubdok@tuhh.de

Six Ways to Make Your ORCID iD Work for You!

ORCID iDCongratulations, you’ve registered for an ORCID iD! The next step is using your iD to build your ORCID record. We know the last thing you want is to have to spend more time updating yet another system, so why not let the organizations and platforms you already interact with do most of the work for you? Not only will it save you time, it also reduces the risk of errors, and helps you ensure trustworthy connections between you and your research contributions and affiliations. After all, who better than your  journal to assert articles that you have authored?

We recommend following these six easy steps to building an authoritative ORCID record – while hardly lifting a (digital) finger! Continue reading

Zotero 5.0 finally arrived

Zotero Icon

Many of you probably know Zotero as a reference management tool. Yesterday version 5.0 was released. Most remarkably this will be the beginning of the end of Zotero as Firefox Add-on. During the next month users of the Firefox Add-on will be requested to migrate to the desktop version. But no need to worry. Zotero Connector will ensure easy browser integration for Firefox as well as for Chrome, Safari and Opera.

Get Zotero

What else will come aboard? “My Publications”: Easily build a list of works — articles, papers, books, etc. — that you’ve created and share them on your profile page on zotero.org. News feeds can be managed within Zotero. More can be found in the change log.
