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.
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: email@example.com
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:

The improvements on TORE are getting funded by the project Hamburg Open Science by the Hamburg Ministry of Science, Research and Equality.
Hopefully it will not happen, but when: In kind of problems with your Shibboleth acount, please contact the ServiceDesk of the TUHH computer center, which also kindly supports the library by taking over the funding of the licence.
MIT Press, affiliated with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is one of the well-respected university presses in the United States. Its focus often refeered to engineering content of long-lasting quality, which also reflects sociocultural developments in technology.
Below you find a selection of newly available online books from MIT Press. In the moment the works are not included in the catalog tub.find and can only be found via IEEE Xplore.
Views into the backstages of the library and the TUHH computer center as well as film perfomances made the OA week perfect.

Every day of the Open Access Week a blog entry was published, not every entry also in English language. In connection to the motto of the week “Design Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge” the following topics have been addressed:
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.
TUHH no longer has access to the complete range of journals published by Elsevier-Verlag. Periodicals for which the TUHH has archive rights are still available.
There is a transitional agreement with SpringerNature, so that the journals available at TUHH will remain accessible in 2019. Negotiations with Wiley will continue, but Wiley’s journals will be available until the end of January 2019.
The TUHH has cancelled all journal subcriptions with the publishers Elsevier, Springer und Wiley to the end of 2018. The TUHH takes part at the project DEAL.
With the project DEAL the German Rectors’ Conference (HRK) is negotiating on behalf of the Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany with the big STEM publishers (Elsevier, SpringerNature und Wiley) about nation-wide agreements for licensing e-journals. The aims of DEAL are:
Fair financial burden to get a wide-scale, lasting access to scholarly literature (e-journals) for academics in Germany.
As open access component, corresponding authors’ publications of participitating institutions should be Open Access automatically (CC-BY).
To bring about significant change to the status quo in relation to negotiations, content and pricing in the process of accessing scholarly information in Germany.
What does DEAL mean actually for the TUHH?
The TUHH has cancelled this year all journal subcriptions with the publishers Elsevier, Springer und Wiley to the end of 2018. The TUHH takes part at the project DEAL.
The situation at TUHH will be the same like at all other German universities which cancelled their subscriptions last year or the year before. The list of these institutions includes for example other universities of technology like those in Aix-La-Chapelle, Berlin, Braunschweig, Darmstadt, Kaiserslautern, Karlsruhe and Munich. In 2018 the TUHH has still had a regular contract with Elsevier because of a three-years-agreement starting 2016.
The status of the DEAL negotiations is open. Contracts with the publishers SpringerNature and Wiley seem to be more possible than a contract with the publisher Elsevier.
What does DEAL mean for the access to e-journals at TUHH in 2019?
Starting 2019 the TUHH will still have access to journals, for which the TUHH had subscriptions with permanent archival rights, until including the volumes of the year 2018.For the publisher Elsevier as example this means:
Via ScienceDirect acccess will still be possible to the most important 48 journals, for which the TUHH has had a subscription until the year 2018.
No access will exist for articles of the year 2019.
No access will be possible to other ScienceDirect journals. Here the access for 2018 has been paid by an annual license without permanent access rights.
For getting articles not available in digital or printed form at the TUHH, you have – as in the moment also – in 2019 the following possibilities:
Ordering through interlibrary loan online: In the moment you get a paper copy normally within one week. In the future, maybe it will be possible in most cases to deliver a digital copy to end-users.
Ordering through other document delivery services: In case you need an article within 24 hours or within 3 working days, the TUHH library will order the articles for TUHH researchers through another delivery service, for which the library will also pay for. This is possible already today on request.
In general, document delivery is possible via various ways of acquisition, which differ in the speed of supply (from at once to several days), in the quality of supply (from original pdf file to paper copy) and in the fees to be paid (to about 75 € for the most expensive type of document delivery).
Please pay special attention to our BookCrossing shelf at the entrance area of the library.
In this subject week we would like to get you in the mood for the 2nd Maritime Night at the TUHH. From your book donations we have put together a varied mixture of non-fiction and novels, detective stories or adventures. Enjoy reading!
