Centre for Electronic Publishing
(Zentrum für Elektronisches Publizieren - ZEP)
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 Centre for Electronic Publishing (Zentrum für Elektronisches Publizieren - ZEP). The ZEP is working on the following main fields of activities:
  • Setting up and running online publication platforms for research and teaching in the field of humanities (,,;
  • developing an organisational-technical infrastructure for publishing electronic specialist journals and periodic official publications;
  • preparing and carrying out cooperative projects to increase the offer of open-access publications.
Several organisational units of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek cooperate in the ZEP, in particular the divisions "Digital Library" and "Journals and Electronic Media", as well as the subject coordinators of the areas of collection emphasis.
