- Checklist for Open Access publications (PDF) - in german only
In line with its Open Access concept, the Leibniz Association seeks to ensure that publications produced by its institutes' employees are freely accessible online as full texts. Publications are listed in the LeibnizOpen central repository, from where they can be retrieved.
TIB provides support to libraries of Leibniz institutions involved in Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Engineering (Section D) and Environmental Research (Section E) for depositing publications in the Leibniz Association's central repository LeibnizOpen.
Before a publication can be stored on the Open Access Leibniz repository, the originator must conclude a user agreement with TIB. The main information concerning this can be found in the Checklist for originators of open access publications . The compilation of major international publishing companies' copyright policies in the SHERPA/RoMEO list (german Translation) may also be useful. User agreement forms can be obtained from the relevant institute library. The institute library then sends the signed user agreements to TIB.
The LeibnizOpen repository is open to all members of Leibniz Association's institutions. We will be happy to deposit publications produced in the institutions named above in the Leibniz repository. If you wish to deposit documents in the Leibniz Association repository, we offer the following options:
File sizes up to 20 MB can be sent as an email attachment to dtf-wgltibeu.
We recommend uploading large files (larger than 20 MB) here: http://tib.eu/dtf3
The preferred format for documents in the repository is PDF.Please note that files can no longer be edited. If, therefore, you wish to protect your file with a password, you should do so before sending the file to TIB.
