Program Overview

TU Wien Bibliothek with its platform reposiTUm supports the open access strategy of TU Wien and ensures the best possible dissemination of scientific publications and information of TU Wien members. The metadata is curated by the library and delivered by reposiTUm https://repositum.tuwien.at/?locale=en to OpenAIRE and BASE; in addition, there is an interface to ORCID for metadata exchange. With TU Wien Academic Press https://www.tuwien.at/academicpress/en, TU Wien Bibliothek has established Austria´s first fully open access publisher. E-books are published from the entire spectrum of subjects taught at TU Wien. The portfolio stretches from architecture to traffic, electrotechnology, robotics, and includes management sciences. Optionally, books are additionally also published as print books. TU Wien Bibliothek also offers alternative open access publication opportunities for journals and conference proceedings with the Janeway hosting platform. It assists in transferring an already existing journal to an open access model and advises in the startup of an open access journal or conference proceedings series.
