As a permanent service of TU Darmstadt, tuprints wants to play a central role in the universitys publishing landscape. Cooperation with authors and departments inside TU, combining recent information technologies with knowhow of the library scene, we seek to offer a secure and user-centered publishing platform, which aims at augmenting the visibility of TU Darmstadt through internet-based publication of scholarly and administrative literature.
We want to support scholarly communication by helping authors to publish their works according to their objectives and in compliance with copyright regulations, but also by embedding our publication service transparently into Open Access-initiatives and providing broad usage possiblities in a barrier free way.
