Advantages of publication on the publications server

Dissemination: The electronic publication is globally accessible and usable at no cost at all times. The online publication based on the principle of open access is therefore recommended by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the German Rectors' Conference.

Proof: Your publications can be easily found and researched on the publications server using various search methods. Through the additional metadata which is saved, references are also recorded in the databases of prominent search engines. Last but not least, your publications can be found via the catalogue of the German National Library, the catalogue of the Bibliotheksverbund Bayern (Bavarian Library Association), in scientific search engines such as BASE, and in national and international databases.

Archiving and visibility: Your electronic publication is saved and archived as a PDF file on the publications server at Rosenheim Technical University of Applied Sciences. This is protected against manipulation. In addition, a Uniform Resource Name (URN) is registered for your publication at the German National Library. By means of this address, your publication is permanently accessible, and can therefore be easily quoted. Furthermore, electronic documents are forwarded to the archive server at the German National Library and stored in their long-term archive. As such, publishing via the publications server at Rosenheim Technical University of Applied Sciences offers you not only the opportunity to ensure long-term archiving, but also a better chance of being noticed by the scientific community through a higher profile on the internet.

Saving time and money: The service is not only free of charge, but also saves you all the costs normally associated with paper-based publication. Doctoral candidates can use OPUS publication to quickly and cheaply fulfil their obligations to publish.
