With this free service, we would like to contribute to the exchange and dissemination of expert information. Share your experience and contribute to our databases by sending us your papers. The publication in open access has great advantages for scientists, because it increases the visibility of publication, promotes dissemination of research results in international and interdisciplinary contexts.
In 2012 we awarded the first "Hornemann Prize for Open Access” with a prize money of 400.- EUR for a much demanded thesis of high quality which can be downloaded free of charge on our website. The scientific quality will be reviewed by an external scientific advisory board.
New: DOIs for scientific citation
To make the data easier to quote we offer our authors a "persistent identifier" in cooperation with the Technical Information Library Hannover (TIB). These DOIs (Digital Object Identifiers) can be searched in catalogues of many well-known libraries worldwide and are accepted by many scientific journals as citation.
A proposal for citation, an example:
