Logo des Projekts FDMentor





The eDissPlus project aims to link research data and dissertations by means of enhanced publications. It supports doctoral candidates to manage, archive and publish research data by offering infrastructure services. After determining the doctoral candidates requirements for these services, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the German National Library being project partners in eDissPlus, will provide organizational workflows and guidelines. Furthermore technical solutions for metadata description, ingest, long-term preservation and publication of research data together with dissertations will be implemented. Thus the German National Library legal deposit of dissertations will be expanded.

Funder: German Research Foundation (DFG)

Project partner: German National Library (DNB)
