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.
The licence for using the reference management software Citavi has been renewed by the TUHH until March 31, 2022. In the moment you get within the software Citavi a hint on renewing your licence.
Please update your licence status by registering at Citavi with your TUHH Login (“Meine Hochschule”). Here you use the Shibboleth service. Then please confirm, that you are still a member of the TUHH.
As wrap-up to the TUHH program for the Open Access Week 2018 the library invites to a tub.talk on December 13, 2018, 1.15 pm.
- Of green roads and DEALs!
What can we do for Open Access?
Thursday, December 13, 2018, 1.15 pm
Room 0.004, the large group room behind the information desk of the tub.
The opening of the week on October 22 started with a TUHH press release (in German) and the publication of the openTUHH Policy. A Poster Walk in the rotund of the TUHH library handled challenges within Open Access.
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:
- How open the TUHH presents itself, together with posters of the tub.
- How a fund for publication supports your Open Access publishing!!
- Considering challenges between quality and Open Access! (in German)
- What does Open Science do for the TUHH!
- Which project does the TUHH library make within the Hamburg Open Online University ((HOOU)! (in German)
- How to train Open Science! (in German)
- Why Open Access can be seen as moral economy and boundary project! (in German)
The TUHH library wants to get into a conservation with you about the status of openness in research and teaching under the motto “Of green roads and DEALs! What can we do for Open Access?”
- Which connection exists between Open Access and the Project DEAL about nation-wide agreements for licensing e-journals?
- What does openness means for you and your research and teaching?
- Which aspect of openness is especially important for you?
- Which limits do you see for openness?
You are invited to attend the tub.talk on December 13, 2018, 1.15 pm (until about 2 pm in maximum) in room 0.004, the large group room behind the information desk of the tub. .
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
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.

Accompanying the Open Access Week 2018 you find will every day a new entry on the topic “open knowledge” in the German part of this blog.
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
And two more tips about Zenodo:
- 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.
- 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:
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?
Where can I find reputable journal titles or publishers?
- The members of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA) are committed to a rigorous review process in order to meet scientific standards.
- The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) lists only peer-reviewed journals and was rebuilt with regard to stricter standards as of 1 January 2015. In addition to the review process, a journal title must have an ISSN, for example.
- The Committee of Publication Ethics (COPE) offers standards for the publication process – especially for peer review. Many journals also publish ethical rules for authors.
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!
Do you have any questions? Send us an email to email@example.com
Often asked for; now it’s time: From now on, the DOI for your document will be displayed on tub.dok before you upload a publication.
This allows you to add the DOI to your PDF for better identification of printouts or saved copies of the file or to insert a quotation recommendation.
By the way, tub.dok supports different persistent identifier schemes: DOI (Digital Object Identifier), Handle and URN (Uniform Resource Name). Persistent identifiers are used to ensure that a publication can be referenced unambiguously and permanently. Of these, the DOI is the best known and therefore the most important one for you.
The named persistent identifiers are initially marked, but have not yet been registered. Therefore, they cannot yet be resolved. They will be registered after completion of your publication, if the publication is activated by us. We will let you know by e-mail. Please be patient until then. :-)
tub.dok is Open Source
The extension of the software DSpace-CRIS, which we use as the basis of our open access repository, was realized by The Library Code and is available to the entire DSpace community via a branch on github for subsequent use.
