The binding TUM Publication Guidelines are now available in a new extended version. Newly included are regulations on how authors indicate their affiliation when belonging to two higher-level units at TUM.
TUM has established a binding, standardized affiliation designation in German and English and regulated its use in publication guidelines. The goal is to ensure that all publications originating at TUM can actually be attributed to our university.
However, until now it was not regulated how authors proceed who belong to two or more higher-level units within TUM, e.g. by belonging to a School and an Integrative Research Center, Central Institute or Cluster of Excellence.
Both affiliations must be named
The update of the Publication Guidelines now provides clarity. In such cases, both affiliations must be named. The institution at which the predominant part of the research work for the publication in question was conducted is listed first.
The updated publication guidelines have been approved by the TUM Board of Management and is binding for all TUM members as well as visiting scholars who research and publish at TUM during their residency.
