The Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts (MWK) in Baden-Württemberg supports open access publishing with a funding programme, which is managed by the Konsortium Baden-Württemberg’s office.
- You are a member of Reutlingen University and are the “submitting author” or “corresponding author” of the article
- The article appears in an open access journal that has a strict quality assurance procedure. You can find an overview of such journals in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)
- Articles in hybrid journals are not eligible for funding
- The publication fee does not exceed 2,000€ (gross)
Reutlingen University participates in the German DEAL agreement with the academic publishers Wiley and Springer Nature.
When you, as an employee of the university, publish in a “Gold” open access journal from Wiley or Springer Nature, you will receive a 20 percent discount on the listed publication fee. The costs of the open access publication are borne by the university.
If you are an employee of the university and choose to publish in a Wiley or Springer Nature journal, choose “open access” as the license option. We recommend a “CC-BY” license. The costs of the open access publication are borne by the university.
The University Bibliography is the central database for publications by authors at Reutlingen University. It is also our repository for both primary and secondary publication of research results as open access.
The university library and RRI work together closely to provide all relevant information for the annual research report. Our goal is for all publications produced at Reutlingen University to be listed, based on what is reported to us by the authors.
ORCID is an organisation that provides researchers and authors with a unique ID (ORCID iD). An ORCID iD ensures that your publications can be correctly attributed to you as a researcher, regardless of whether your name is spelt differently, whether someone else has the same name as you or whether your name changes. We recommend that you register with ORCID: as well as quickly becoming an international norm, many publishers and funding agencies require you to provide your ORCID iD when you submit publications or proposals.
In the University Bibliography, a link is also provided from your publications to your ORCID record.
With the support of the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts, Tübingen University Library created the Central OER Repository of the state universities in Baden-Württemberg (ZOERR), which it operates as a service for all universities in Baden-Württemberg. Reutlingen University has been a partner in this project since 2017.
Teachers at Reutlingen University can publish their teaching materials in ZOERR and thus make their teaching achievements more visible.
