Thieme Sharing Guidevergrößern
Thieme endorses the STM Voluntary article sharing principles to enable collaboration, professional relationships and advances in science and discovery.
We want you to share your research with colleagues and maximize its visibility and impact, at every stage of publication. The below guidelines will help you to understand how you can share your articles, depending on the article version you wish to re-use.
DOI Link to the published article on Thieme-connect
One easy way to maximize the impact of your research is to share the DOI linking to your article on Thieme-connect with your colleagues, friends, business contacts, and on your institutional profile page. You can also increase awareness posting the link on social media or professional and academic networking sites.
You can share the peer-reviewed, accepted version of your article (Accepted Manuscript, AM) without any alterations or enhancements:
- As part of a grant application or submission of thesis or doctorate
- In invitation-only research collaboration groups via sites entered into an agreement with Thieme.
After an embargo period of 12 months
- On Scholarly Collaboration Networks (SCNs) which have signed up to the STM Voluntary article sharing principles
- On not-for-profit hosting platforms such as your institutional repository, for example at your affiliated institution or non-commercial subject-based repositories, such as PMC, Europe PMC.
The Accepted Manuscript should always:
- Include a link from your posted AM to the final published version on Thieme-connect via its DOI
- Include the following text:
"This is an Accepted Manuscript of an article published by Thieme Publishing Group in Journal Title on Publication Date, available online at https://www.thieme-connect.de/products/ejournals/abstract/10.1055/article DOI"
Published Journal Article
