It is stated in the rectorate's resolution from the 3rd session of February 7th
2007, Appendix 2, Numeral 7.1, that:
"The faculties keep records of their publications (in full text, if
necessary) on the central UDE document server (DuEPublico)."
As a member of the university of Duisburg-Essen you should, therefore, register
your publications with this element of the university bibliography.
If possibly, you should
also make the full text available in DuEPublico. This way you will support the "green
way" of Open Access, by making the text
available on this server free of charge in parallel with your publication at a
What kinds of publication can be registered?
- Monographs (i.e. books, including those that are not distributed via the book
trade, so-called "grey literature" or "non-conventional literature")

- Contributions to conference proceedings / publications

(cannot be covered at present; in progress)

smaller reports about events, projects etc.

Dissertations and postdoctoral theses are registered by the university
The university bibliography offers the possibility to link persons to titles
that are not taken into consideration according to the usual rules and standards
for library catalogues, i.e. further editors or other
persons involved - who often have contributed significantly to a work, but
due to their "position" in title data are not mentioned in ordinary library
catalogues and, therefore, are not searchable. Titles including all persons
involved can be linked here in the university bibliography.
Which groups of persons can - or should - register their publications?
The following groups of persons as members of Duisburg Essen University should
register their publications with the university bibliography:
university professors, scientific and artistic staff members,
privat lecturers, extraordinary professors, honorary professors, guest lecturers, as well as
Furthermore, former members of the university of Duisburg-Essen, such as emeritus professors,
can register their publications.
From which period can publications be registered?
Basically, you can register all your publications with the university
bibliography and thus establish and maintain your complete personal bibliography.
Publications produced during the period of your university membership
should be identified by you in the appropriate entry field, however. This way you
will help us to separate your "personal bibliography" from the "university
bibliography", which is helpful for searches and future evaluations.
How can a list of personal publications be created and used?
Your list of personal publications can be integrated as a link into your own web pages or can be exported
in several formats. You can find more information at Search as link
Special features for members of the faculty of medicine
At the present time we are examining whether an automatic data transfer from EVALuna
Biblio is practicable for publications of the medical faculty. If your publications
are shown in this system, no re-registration is expected to be necessary. If you
should already wish to enter your publications manually however, you can do so, of
course. Medical dissertations and postdoctoral theses are registered, like those of
other faculties, by the university library itself.
