In the publication of research results or teaching materials such methods of electronic publishing are increasingly used which take advantage of the Internet as a means of making academic documents available internationally. To do justice to this development and in particular to be able to offer even better support to the field of humanities in preparing and publishing such online publications, the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek has founded a Center for Electronic Publishing (Zentrum für Elektronisches Publizieren – ZEP).

The ZEP is working on the following main fields of activities:

  • Set-up and operation of online publication platforms for research and education in the field of humanities
  • Provision of an organizational-technical infrastructure for the electronic publishing of specialised journals with the aid of open journal systems (OJS)
  • Production of periodical official publications
  • Preparation and execution of cooperative projects to increase the number of available open-access publications

The ZEP cooperates with several organisation units of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, in particular with the division "Information Technology" and the Munich Digitization Center and the specialist coordinators of the fields of collection emphasis.
