TUM University Library News

About the Library

With over 1.55 million electronic and printed items, 530,000 loans, 3.5 million full-text downloads and 1.6 million library visitors each year, the university library is the academic information centre of the Technische Universität München (TUM). Our services support students, scientists and university staff in their studies, research, teaching, further education and advanced training.

In Search of Quality: Rate Open Access Journals

Open Access IconAre you planning a publication and you want to publish your paper in a quality journal - preferably open access? Then QOAM (Quality Open Access Market) could support your decision-making. The idea is simple: Academics from all over the world evaluate open access journals. Their quality will be rated in QOAM based on academic crowd sourcing.

Login with your TUM ID

Contribute to QOAM and log in with your TUM ID. You can bring in your real life experience with a specific journal and see how other authors have rated it. To avoid misconduct, only scientists from registered institutions can participate.

QOAM was developped by the Dutch research support organisation SURF. The TUM is the first German university which takes part in this project.

Know how to cite

Wörterbuchseite mit dem Schriftzug GuideHow to make use of technical standards? How to cite student papers? These and many more questions on citing and avoiding plagiarism will answer the Library's new citation guide.

The citation guide was published in close cooperation with the Ombudspeople for Good Scientific Practice at the TUM. The paper provides information on fundamental citing principals and potential obstacles, offers tips on reference management programmes and recommends the use of established citation styles.
