Self-Archiving Services

Many publishers have policies and special requirements regarding self-archiving and usage of a text. The University Library takes care of investigating which publishers permit what.

We’ll take care of:

  • Checking the legal requirements for self-archiving (Green Open Access)
  • Contacting publishers to obtain permissions
  • If applicable, preparing the files and submitting them to the repository DepositOnce

Checklist for Publishing Publications on DepositOnce



Self-archiving in a repository generally happens either at the same time as the original publication or after a set delay. For this purpose, TU members may use DepositOnce, TU Berlin’s repository for research data and publications.

Repositories such as DepositOnce ensure that documents are archived for the long term, which is usually not guaranteed when they are posted on personal or institutional websites.

Example Repositories by Discipline:

Physics, mathematics, computer science, biology, finance, and statistics



Medicine, biology, and adjacent fields

Open Access Rights with Alliance and National Licenses

When acquiring subscriptions, the University Library has already reached special agreements with some publishers that include open access rights. In those cases, it is possible to self-archive articles (co-)authored by researchers from our university in the university’s repository. The University Library is gradually making use of this right.
