Principles of the archive

The ZMT CRIS is a tool to store and manage data about research conducted at the ZMT in order to fulfill the duty to report on ZMT‘s activities.The archive will accept any kinds of papers: articles of Scientific Journals (peer-reviewed & non peer-reviewed), newspaper or magazine articles, books, book chapters, proceedings, conference papers, presentations, poster, theses (published & not published yet), teaching resources, technical reports, and other documents.

To be accepted to ZMT CRIS the documents have to be with ZMT affiliation or in relation with the position at ZMT and the required metadata have to be correct. All languages are supported, but we do encourage adding an English abstract if the publication is not in English.

Published items will not be removed from the archive, since this will break any links made to that document. Instead the archive allows the upload of later versions of a document, and readers are directed to the latest version. The archive administrator will, however, inhibit documents upon request.
