Publishing Agreements with Open Access Options for TUHH Members

Special conditions for publishing in Open Access have been agreed upon with some publishers within the framework of license agreements or memberships. In the following, we inform you about the agreements from which you can benefit as a TUHH member. Please note that you must also apply in advance to these publishers for funding through the publication fund.

AIP – Publish and Read

The contract includes journals of the American Institute of Physics (AIP) as well as the following Member Societies:

  • Acoustical Society of America (ASA),
  • American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT),
  • Science and Technology Society (AVS),

Springer Nature

Project DEAL

The TUHH participates in the Germany-wide DEAL agreement with the scientific publisher Springer Nature. Fees for articles in hybrid journals are paid centrally, fees for articles in genuine open access journals only upon request.

Nature journals, magazines (e.g. Scientific American, Spektrum der Wissenschaft and technical journals (e.g. ATZ, MTZ) are not included.

Nature Journals

In the context of the DEAL contracts, a new consortium agreement for access and publication was concluded for the Nature portfolio. For this, a fixed share of the payments from Germany is used to offset the Open Access position, which costs €9,500 + VAT per article. As soon as this amount is used up, the institutions themselves must provide the funding.

The OA journals Scientific Reports, Scientfic Data, Nature Communications, Communications Biology, Communication Chemistry and Communications Physics fall under the original DEAL Springer Nature contract and are therefore not affected by this contract and prices!
