The University Library of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin has been operating its own repository (a publication server), the edoc-Server, since 1997. It provides the organisational and technical framework for the publication and permanent archiving of electronic scientific publications in accordance with open access.

The edoc-Server can be reached at the following web address:

Publishing on the edoc-Server

Theses (e.g. dissertations) and other types of publications (e.g. research reports) by members of Humboldt-Universität can be published on the edoc-Server. The edoc-Server also provides a platform for the secondary publication of documents that have already been published elsewhere. Research data can also be published on the edoc-Server.

Furthermore, journals and other serials can be published on the edoc server. This service is primarily available to editors of existing and new journals and serials.

Publications on the edoc-server are always published open access. Initial publications correspond to the golden route (gold open access), secondary publications correspond to the green route (green open access).
