Digital secondary publications on OstDok

As part of the so-called "Green Road" to open access, we offer scientists and scholars the opportunity to publish works that have already appeared in print as a digital secondary publication in the OstDok specialist repository. We accept works by individual researchers as well as series and book collections produced by institutions.



Individuals can publish already printed works as electronic secondary publications in the OstDok subject repository. We will be happy to help you clarify the legal requirements.


Editors, research institutions, scientific libraries and publishing houses

As an institution or editor*, you can have your own academic series or more extensive book collections digitised and make them available in open access in the OstDok repository. The prerequisite is that you hold the copyright or that the title is copyright-free or out of print.
