Online publication in JLUpub

The institutional repository JLUpub is available for the online publication of your habilitation. Habilitations are published in the community JLUdocs - Text documents.

Name your PDF file according to the following scheme:
"LastnameFirstname-Year-Month-Day" (date of defence/lecture)
Example: MuellerJulia-2023-02-24

In terms of content and layout, the print version and the submitted PDF file must be identical; only personal data such as date of birth, CV, addresses and signatures should be removed from the PDF file.

Once the habilitation has been published online, it can no longer be deleted or changed.

After a formal review of the online submission and the printed copies by the university library, your habilitation will be published in JLUpub.

We will send a confirmation that your habilitation has been submitted to your responsible dean’s office or examination office.

Cumulative habilitation

In the case of a cumulative habilitation, the articles included have already been published in journals. You must check your contracts or, if necessary, ask the publisher whether a secondary publication of the articles as part of the cumulative habilitation, especially an online publication, is permitted.

SHERPA/Romeo provides an overview of the guidelines of many journals and publishers on secondary publications, especially in open access repositories such as JLUpub.

If you have published your article Open Access under a Creative-Commons-licence, you did not transfer the copyright to the publisher and thus, you can continue to use your work as you like.

If the publisher does not permit a secondary publication as part of your habilitation, you can remove the relevant article from the PDF for online publication and cite the removed article with an accurate bibliographic citation (preferably with a DOI).

Note that in any case the source of the first publication must be given correctly and in full, including the link or DOI of the publisher’s version.
