Principles of the Repository

The ZMT PUB is a digital repository designated for the preservation and management of academic publications associated with ZMT affiliated authors or editors. The bulk of this collection comprises articles published in scholarly journals in addition to contributions in monographs (book chapters) or inbooks. Reviews and conference papers as well as ebooks are also included. Other publication types are added on a case–by-case basis.

ZMT PUB allows public access for searching and reviewing of stored metadata. Full-text access is granted to the public only for any items published in open-access. Restricted access via ZMT log-in allows downloading of all documents.

The platform serves as tool for submission of documents by ZMT affiliated scientists or students, who deposit items published in the context of their work or study at ZMT. The submissions form requires entry of various descriptive data. After submission, entries will be reviewed and metadata will completed as needed by the librarian. We encourage the inclusion of an abstract. English is the preferred language for metadata entries, although other languages are supported

Items that were added to the repository will not be removed even after publication of a new edition. This is intended to support persistent URL-linking to content on our site. Revised versions of a documents may be uploaded, and readers are directed to the latest version. The archive administrator will, however, block access to full-text documents upon request.
