Republication of own texts/Secondary use

After a one-year protection period (UrhG 2 § 38), we permit our authors of dependent publications (i. e. contributions to anthologies or magazines) to republish their texts. The original place of publication must be mentioned and a link to the publication on the publisher’s homepage is also desired if possible.
Contributions can be made available in the accepted manuscript version in non-commercial, institutional repositories or on the author’s personal website. The accepted manuscript version is the version that the contributor submitted to the editors for review – that means the version before revision and typographical set up. Publisher PDFs of our publications or scans of the published version will not be released for a digital secondary use.
