For researchers

The Library supports researchers in writing, citing, publishing and research impact. Contact us for advice on data management, copyright and re-use of your publications.

Writing and publishing

In writing an article, a dissertation or a thesis you need to think about your publishing strategy and how to behave towards editors and publishers to get the most out of your publications.

More on writing and publishing


When citing you acknowledge the work of others for the sources you used in your academic thesis, paper, report, assignment or other work. Besides giving authors of these sources credit for their work, citing enables your readers to find your information sources.

The Library supports the use of EndNote or Mendeley for your reference management.

More on citing


If you re-use articles, book chapters and other copyrighted texts and images in educational materials, there are rather complex restrictions. Use the copyright flowchart to decide whether you are allowed to include texts in teaching materials.
