Publication data submission

Publication data submission

…is managed by the Library Team via MPG.PuRe (Max Planck Society publication repository).

All publications, journal articles, book chapters, doctoral theses, diploma theses, etc. are cataloged in PuRe to present the research activities of the Max Planck institutes in Martinsried. The scientists are encouraged by the Max Planck Society to publish their work open access and to also store the full texts in this database. In addition, PuRe offers scientists the opportunity to submit additional material, posters, etc. to publish permanently.

Coverage of dissertations, diploma theses / deposit copy

According to § 5 Paragraph 4 of the Library Regulations, employees of the institutes who publish in an official capacity have to provide the library with a copy for the archive. • Please submit your thesis in printed and / or electronic form (PDF). • The dissertations and diploma theses are recorded in the library catalog. • The electronic version is archived on PuRe, the MPG's document server. There it is freely accessible on the Internet for non-commercial use.

MPG.PuRe is OpenAIRE compliant

Link MPG.PuRe has officially gained OpenAIRE compliance since June 2015. For our users the most prominent innovation surley is the integration of new metadata fields for "project information", among other things containing data about funding organisations or funding programs, such as Horizon2020. Further information on this topics (in German) can be found at the Link MPG.PuRe-Blog.
This refers to all publications with a publicly available full text attached or with a grant ID available within the metadata.
Users at the Max Planck Institutes thus can meet EU requests for the submission of publications within an OpenAIRE compliant repository simply by depositing their scientific output in PuRe as normal.
