Publishing & Open Access

Open Access and Publication Fund

Open access means permanent access to scientific information on the Internet for everyone and free of charge. The Open access team of the University Library advises and supports Braunschweig's scientists in all questions concerning Open access publishing. 

Technische Universität Braunschweig promotes the unrestricted exchange of research results. The Open Access Policy adopted by the Senate recommends that the TU's scientists should make their publications available from an Open Access perspective. An option to do so is given by the official repository of TU Braunschweig


Thesis Office

Compulsory copies of dissertations and habilitations are submitted to the thesis office. If all requirements are fulfilled, a confirmation will be provided that is necessary to receive the doctoral certificate.


Research Data Management

TUBS.researchdata – Service Center Research Data offers advice and support for example in handling of research data, in context of applications for third-party funding and through training courses. An institutional research data repository is also being planned. If you have any questions, please contact:



Bibliometrics deals with the measurement of scientific publications and uses statistical methods to describe publishing behaviour. It is an useful method to increase the visibility of your own research and to help you to optimise your publishing strategy.

We support you with publication and citation analyses.

Publication Guidelines

On February, 20th 2019, the Senate of the TU Braunschweig passed a guideline for the standardized use of the name Technische Universität Braunschweig in publications. This guideline is obligatory for all members of Technische Universität Braunschweig.

It applies to publications of research results including research transfer. It also covers research-related social media contributions and audiovisual media.

The guidelines regulate the official name ("Technische Universität Braunschweig", also in English), declarations of multiple institutional affiliation and other information.

We are happy to support you with publication and citation analyses.
