OPUS publication server of the University of Bamberg

OPUS becomes part of the University's Research Information System (FIS). Therefore data entry in OPUS will no longer be possible from 16.09.2019. From 01.10.2019 the new input options of the FIS are available. We appreciate your understanding.


OPUS publication server lists publications of members of the University of Bamberg. If allowed by legal conditions there are full texts attached to the bibliographic data. Hence, OPUS serves as an institutional repository, as an university bibliography, and at the same time, as the publication server of the University of Bamberg.

Members of the University of Bamberg can use OPUS to publish scientific documents (e. g. books, articles, working papers, reports, dissertations, final papers, etc.).

In most cases, it is legally possible to publish preprints and postprints. The University of Bamberg supports Open Access publications with OPUS (please confer to the open access statement of the university). You will find details about the publishers' standard rules for open access publications in the SHERPA/RoMEO list or by clicking here.

All full text documents are listed in catalogues and search machines; they are made available for general access at no charge.
