Individual digital publications can be deposited via our web desk.

What can I deposit?

Publications must meet our depot’s inclusion criteria. Also keep the following points in mind:

  • Only deposit complete publications. We do not accept individual articles and documents without a cover or title page.
  • Always send the 'clean version' of a publication, without comments and markup for the publisher.
  • Newsletters and annual publications will be reviewed for inclusion after submission of a first copy.
  • We will inform you if we are unable to accept your publication.

We will inform you if we are unable to accept your publication.
