#OAWeek2018 Hamburg Open Science at TUHH

Open Science TUHH requires close cooperation between research and infrastructure. On 6 December 2017, the Hamburg Parliament adopted the „Hamburg Open Science (HOS)“ programme. The aim is to make the research results of publicly funded research in Hamburg freely accessible and easy to discover.

At the TU Hamburg, the preliminary planning for Hamburg Open Science was carried out in close coordination between the Vice President Research, Prof. Dr. Timm-Giel, the library, the computer center and the presidential research department. The TU accepted the challenge that Open also stands for solutions based on Open Source. The library is involved in the following projects in 2018: Continue reading

#OAWeek2018 Welcome to OpenTUHH Policy and Poster Walk

Open Access Week 2018 at TUHH

Open Access – the free access to knowledge – has been a strategic goal of Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) since 2013. At the International Open Access Week from 22 to 28 October, TUHH’s openTUHH Policy will for the first time focus on the unity of openness in teaching and research and thus on common digital infrastructures. The openTUHH Policy developed from the projects Hamburg Open Science and Hamburg Open Online University with the goal of promoting digital cultural change at the University.

The right journal for my article – ThinkCheckSubmit

Think Check Submit

Journals are a huge and sometimes confusing offer. How do I make sure I make the right choice for my purpose? In which Open Access journals can the publication be funded by the TUHH DFG-Publishing Fund?

On Monday, July 16, 2018, from 1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m., the library in room 0.004 behind the information in the context of tub.talks offers the opportunity for personal exchange, to which the tub. cordially invites.

Where can I find reputable journal titles or publishers?

What should I pay particular attention by selecting a journal?

The Think Check Submit page offers a checklist, some of which are questions:

Do you or your colleagues know the journal?

– Have you read articles in the journal in the past?
– Can you easily find the latest articles in the journal?

Can you simply identify and contact the publisher?

– Is the publisher’s name clearly indicated on the journal’s homepage?
– Can you contact the publisher by phone, e-mail or post?

Does the journal provide clear information on its peer review process?

Are the articles indexed in databases that you use yourself? e.g. Web of Science, Scopus?

Is it clear what costs will be incurred?

– Does the journal’s website explain what payments are made for and when they are billed?

Open Access significantly promotes the visibility of research. But Open Access has also become a new business model that attracts dubious providers. These send out a wide range of invitations to the scientific community with initially low rates for the publication of articles for “feeding”. There is no review process, but high item costs later. In other cases the articles are no longer available after a short time or they are not activated despite payment. In addition, these journals, also known as predatory journals or robbery journals, are generally not evaluated in the Web of Science and Scopus databases. It’s unfortunate for anyone who wants to pursue a scientific career. By the way, there are similar mechanisms for congress invitations!

Expect Some Noise

 sockets
Dear students,

starting Wednesday, 2nd November 2016, it will be a bit louder in the library, because the new sockets at the walls will be installed! This will last  until Friday …
In the evenings there will be no construction work!

This will take us a step closer to optimized power supply for your mobile devices!

In case of need, please pick up your earplugs at the information desk!

Thank you for your understanding!!

Secure digital research data for the future

The TUHH as an university of technology has the mission to develop technology for people. The university TUHH offers research and education at a high academic level. For the future development and competitiveness in the international context, the TUHH must participate in the discussion on Open Access for research results and research data. Open Access can result in a higher quality of scientific results, better visibility and greater discussion within the scientific community and a better international cooperation. Funding sources as DFG and EU already require open access availability of research results. Hamburg has just launched a prestudy for Hamburg Open Archive, the platform for Open Access in Hamburg.

TUHH adopted the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) recommendations to ensure “Good Scientific Practice” and also the DFG “Guidelines for handling research data“. In this context, we would like to collect requirements and needs for research data management at TUHH.  Research data in this survey is defined as raw data (measured data, source code, simulation results, image data, etc.) on which research results and publications are based.

The TUHH survey about Research Data on behalf of the Präsidium of TUHH is based on the already carried out surveys of the Humboldt University (2013) and the Technische Universität Darmstadt (2015). Participation is voluntary and anonymously possible in German and English. The Scientific Staff and the DV-Beauftragte have been invited by mail to participate in the survey. In case we missed anyone interested at TUHH, please send a short mail to the library. Thank you so much!

The survey is online until 8/15/2016.

For questions, please contact the library or the President’s Research Department.

Sustainability – what is that to me ??

On the occasion of the 1st Sustainability Day at TUHH, the TUHH library contributes to, a few words about the TUHH library striving for sustainability.

Nature in town

Roof greening at TUHH library

As a library, we contribute to various fields of sustainability already:

You, our users behave resource-friendly by borrowing books, since printed books are used repeatedly. We offer downloads and scanning options, additionally we lend USB sticks. This may help to use less paper.

The roof of our building, occupied in 1991, is planted on all three levels. The compact shelving in the stack efficiently saves space when storing printed books. The rotunda brings a lot of brightness inside the building – in some times also a little too much heat. Since the end of 2012 new LED lights along the window front have brought more light to the workplaces at approximately the same power consumption. At the end of the opening times, our Internet computers turn off automatically in the Reading Room. The internal office workplaces use particularly durable printer with the label “Energy Star”. We have already recycled printer cartridges for many years.

And of course we have other goals for the near future : Would you support us in the separation of waste from packaging, paper and residual waste? To realise somewhat more complicated will be a modern management of lighting in the reading area.
