    Allgemeine Informationen

    Die Max-Planck-Gesellschaft unterstützt seit über zehn Jahren Initiativen zu "Open Access" und nimmt gleichzeitig als Begründerin der Berliner Erklärung und der sogenannten Berlin-Konferenzen eine Vorreiterrolle ein. Gut zwölf Prozent aller Max-Planck-Originalpublikationen sind mittlerweile im Open Access verfügbar. Diese Entwicklung soll weiterhin bestärkt und befördert werden, denn die unmittelbare, allgemeine und freie Zugänglichkeit des gesamten wissenschaftlichen Wissens ist erklärtes Ziel der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft.

    Die MPDL unterstützt Open Access zum einen durch die Bereitstellung des Repositoriums "MPG.PuRe", das für die Veröffentlichung von Forschungsarbeiten als Original- oder Zweitveröffentlichung aus der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft von allen Instituten und Mitarbeitern genutzt werden kann. Des Weiteren werden im Bereich Information/Grundversorgung seit 2003 Rahmenverträge abgeschlossen, die eine zentrale kostenübernahme für Open-Access-Publikationskosten für MPG-Autoren regeln. Eine Übersicht über diese Verträge finden Sie unter "Open Access Publishing".

  • Erwerbung

    Die Erwerbung ist ein zentrales Feld der Zusammenarbeit zwischen MPDL und Institutsbibliotheken. Um die Bedarfe der Institute zu ermitteln, zu bündeln und zu unterstützen, werden verschiedene Instrumente und Prozesse eingesetzt. Dahinter steht eine seit vielen Jahren eingespielte Praxis, die kontinuierlich weiterentwickelt wird. 

     

    Bedarfserhebungen

    Zur Definition und Austarierung unseres Angebotsportfolios von Zeitschriften oder elektronischen Büchern eines Verlages gehört die Ermittlung, Aggregierung und Gewichtung der Bedarfe an den Max-Planck-Instituten. Wann immer ein Anlass vorliegt, wird eine entsprechende Bedarfserhebung vorbereitet und durchgeführt. Dazu werden aufbereitete Titellisten sowie ggf. die dazugehörigen Bestandsdaten und Nutzungszahlen auf Institutsebene zur Verfügung gestellt und jedes Max-Planck-Institut erhält die Möglichkeit, Titel des eigenen Bedarfs zu identifizieren und mit einer Wertekategorie zu versehen.

    Aktuell stehen keine Bedarfserhebungen an. Sobald wieder eine Bedarfserhebung durchgeführt wird, findet sich der Einstieg zu diesem Service an dieser Stelle.

     

    Wunschliste

    Ein wichtiges Instrument ist die Meldung und Bewertung von Beschaffungsvorschlägen durch die Institutsbiliotheken. Mit der Wunschliste der MPG-Bibliotheken (Login erforderlich) betreibt die MPDL ein für alle Institute einsehbares Datenbanksystem, in dem die Vorschläge, Beurteilungen und zugehörigen Entscheidungsprozesse transparent dokumentiert sind.

    Die Plattform ist nur für registrierte Institutsaccounts zugänglich. Interessierte Institute ohne Login bitten wir um eine eMail an This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

     

    E-Book Einzeltitelerwerb

    Die MPG hat mit verschiedenen Anbietern Rahmenverträge zum lokalen Einzeltitelerwerb von E-Books geschlossen. Informationen zu den jeweiligen E-Book-Bestellverfahren, ein entsprechendes Bestellformular sowie weitere Dokumente (z.B. Checkliste für Vertragsabschlüsse) finden Sie auf unseren Serviceseiten (MPG intern).

     

    Normen

    Über die MPDL können benötigte DIN-, ISO- und VDI-Normen erworben werden. Im Gegensatz zum E-Book-Einzeltitelerwerb werden die Kosten für diese Dokumente zentral übernommen. Nach Erwerb werden die Normen in den Zugangssystemen nachgewiesen und für MPG-weiten Zugriff bereitgestellt. Bitte benutzen Sie für die Bestellung das entsprechende Formular auf den Serviceseiten (MPG intern).

     

    DDP-Konditionen

    Einige Lizenzverträge der Grundversorgung beinhalten DDP-Konditionen (deep discount price), die Einrichtungen der MPG e.V. den rabattierten Bezug von gedruckten Zeitschriften ermöglichen. Wir haben diese Sonderkonditionen als Excel-Liste für Sie zusammengestellt.

     

    National- und Allianzlizenzen

    Für die nationallizenzierten bzw. deutschlandweit ohne Kosten zugänglichen Ressourcen (s. Übersicht) übernimmt die MPDL die Registrierung als zentralen Service für die gesamte MPG.

    Bei den Allianzlizenzen prüft das Lizenzteam der MPDL zunächst, ob das Produkt für eine MPG-weite Lizenzierung in Frage kommt und gibt die Information anschließend an die MPG-Bibliotheken weiter. Falls kein zentraler Vertrag geplant ist, können die Institute lokal an der Allianzlizenz teilnehmen. Dazu wird im Nationallizenz-Portal ein zusätzlicher Institutsaccount erstellt ("Dummy-Account").

    Die Liste der DFG-geförderten Ressourcen kann über den Funding-Filter in MPG.ReNa eingesehen werden.

  • Grundversorgung, Akteure

    Grundversorgung

    Im Jahr 1999 ist auf Beschluss der drei Sektionen der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft unter dem Namen "Grundversorgung" ein Konzept und ein Etat zur MPG-weiten Lizenzie­rung elektronischer Ressourcen verabschiedet worden. Seither ist die Grundversor­gung das zentrale Programm der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft zur institutsübergreifenden Lizenzierung elektronischer Ressourcen.

    Für die Grundversorgung werden jene Ressourcen ausgewählt, für die die Bündelung auf zentraler Ebene vorteilhafter erscheint als eine lokale Versorgung durch einzelne Instituts-Bibliotheken. Dies gilt auch für die zentrale Teilnahme an Allianz- und Nationallizenzen. Dabei fließen verschiedene Faktoren in den Entscheidungsprozess mit ein: Breite und Dringlichkeit des Bedarfs, Geschäftsmodell und Kosten-Struktur von Angeboten, aber auch Möglichkeiten der Erschließung, Vernetzung und Archivierung.

    Neben der Lizensierung ist das Informationsmanagement und die Bereitstellung von zentralen und lokalen Zuganssystemen von zentraler Bedeutung für die Informationsversorgung. Weitere Informationen hierzu finden Sie im Bereich "Zugangssysteme". 

    Akteure

    Grundversorgung und Informationsmanagement werden hauptsächlich im Bereich "Information" der MPDL organisiert.
