Description:
pedocs is a scholarly open access document server for scientifically relevant publications in the field of educational research and educational science. It is provided by the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF), and was funded by the German Research Association (DFG). pedocs offers authors in the disciplines of educational science and education as well as related domains an organisational and technical framework for publishing scientifically relevant documents in electronic form. Besides offering documents the scientists enter into the system themselves, thus rendering their own publications openly accessible via pedocs, scholarly literature is acquired by pedocs subject to different co-operation models in close collaboration with renowned publishing houses. This type of acquisition assures access to edited scholarly contents that can be unanimously cited. Pedocs stores the documents on a central server, enrich them with bibliographic data and index their contents. Moreover, pedocs closely collaborates with the German National Library (DNB) in striving towards the long-term storage of documents, in order to assure they will be searchable via pedocs for a long time. A global availability of documents is assured by incorporating pedocs into the German Education Portal, the central access to educational information, and by rendering pedocs searchable on the German Education Server and in search engines. By providing pedocs, the DIPF offers researchers and authors an opportunity to self-archive their scholarly publications. By self-archiving their publications, researchers support and promote open access to scholarly information, an approach that is adopted by renowned research organisations and respective funding organisations in the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities, which is also endorsed by the Open Access Policy of the DIPF.
