Important note for all users of TEMA
The company WTI-Frankfurt GmbH, which has operated this database for technology and management, has filed for insolvency in December 2021. Therefore, it is now uncertain how long this database can still be accessed.
Good news: Access to journals in the Nature portfolio has been extended for the TUHH and, from 1 January 2021, TUHH authors will have the opportunity to publish their articles in Nature and a further 32 original Nature research journals in open access. In the context of the DEAL contracts, a new consortium agreement for access and publication has been concluded. For this purpose, a fixed share of the payments from Germany is used to offset the OA costs, which amount to €9,500 + VAT per article. As soon as this amount is used up, the institutions themselves have to provide the funding. It is therefore worthwhile to successfully complete the review process early in the year with the publication! €9,500 is a very high and not uncontroversial price! As long as reputation in science is assessed via publication, prices will continue to rise and be paid. Perhaps you are interested in the actual discussion paper by the »Scientific practice« working group of the Priority Initiative »Digital Information« by the Alliance of Science Organisations with the title “Expanding academic publishing practices alongside the digital turn”.
We entered into the agreement because we receive reading access to the 2021 volume of the 55 titles of the Nature Portfolio, including the 21 Nature Review titles, at very little additional cost. The contract period is 2021-2024, can be cancelled annually. Previously, we only had access to the journal Nature and 3 other subscriptions.

Instead of paying a fee for downloading the full text take the reference to a freely accessible version!
There is now support for your access to closed journal articles. On our reading room PCs you will find the browser plugin unpaywall, which is available for the Internet browsers Firefox and Chrome.
When surfing on the websites of scientific journals, provider platforms or databases, a green lock signals the presence of an Open Access publication of the article after a few seconds. A click on the symbol “Green lock” leads you to the free full text.
Test the example in the reading room!
We also recommend that you download the plugin for your own use, as unpaywall unlike other sites only identifies legal Open Access versions of paid content. It is also important to note that this open access version does not visually correspond to the publisher’s version, as layout and logos are usually not allowed to be used. Also, an embargo period must often be observed when publishing the preprint or an accepted manuscript. The older the article, the more likely it is to be found.

Two years ago the tub. changed access for journals of the American Chemical Society (ACS) from print to online. This year the tub. offers access to further ACS journals within the TUHH intranet.
A journals package has been licensed, which includes more journals by paying not too much additional costs. Additional journals has been selected from those journals not accessible until now, whose „access denied“ figures has been the highest in 2017.
The transition from the printed to the digital version of journals has resulted in an increase of expenses for digital journals in the last years. At the request of its customers the TUHH library has now switched its journal subscriptions at the American Chemical Society (ACS) to the digital version:
The transiiton was not self-financing. The TUHH library now pays more than for the printed versions of the journals.
In addition to the five important new ones, the TUHH library has been offering access to two further ACS eJournals since a few years:
Energy & fuels
Rubber chemistry and technology
We are pleased to offer you access to new e-books of the following publishers in 2015:
11,600 e-books (incl. 1,500 titles by Woodhead and Chandos) from all subjects until 2014.
- Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Press
550 e-books with a focus on publications in computer science and engineering from the period 1943-2014.
15,000 e-books from all disciplines.
Furthermore, the journal package Elsevier Freedom Collection has been licensed for one year. With this license, you have access to 2,300+ journals via the platform ScienceDirect which are published since 2011.
Via TUBfind you also have access to the e-journals and e-books.
Queries to our e-media offering we will be happy to answer. Please send an e-mail to our e-media team.
In 2015 access to most of the journals of ScienceDirect, the platform of the publisher Elsevier, is possible within TUHH intranet.
In addition to 57 journals subscribed until now, the TUHH library licensed for one year the so-called „Freedom Collection“ of the publisher (Information page of Elsevier). With this licensing access is possible to more than 2300 journals starting with the year 2011. Archival rights for permanent access to the journals have not been acquired within this additonal package.
A list of all accessible journals of the Freedom Collection is available, as is a complete list, containing also journals without access.
Since the beginning of the year 2104 the important journal “Nature : the international weekly journal of science” is available in the TUHH intranet also with its actual issues. Until now the TUHH libray has subscribed to the printed version which has been cancelled.
The sister journals “Nature Biotechnology” and “Nature Photonics” can be accessed to get actual full texts also.
