Scholarly output can be archived and accessed in repositories operated by universities or research institutions. There are two different types of repository: institutional and subject.
Repositories ensure documents are accessible long-term, which cannot be guaranteed on personal or institutional web sites.
Self-archiving in a repository takes places simultaneously or after an embargo period. TU research members can use TU Berlin's institutional repository – DepositOnce. Our self-archiving services can assist you in checking the legal requirements.
We expressly recommend disciplinary preprint servers for preprints, i.e. online publication before or at the same time as submission to the publisher. Preprints can also be deposited in DepositOnce.
