OstDok (Osteuropa-Dokumente online – Eastern Europe Documents on-line) is the central open access platform for the full texts of research published electronically in Eastern, East-Central and South-East European studies. It forms part of the interdisciplinary portal osmikon.
The offering includes retro-digitized book series published by partners in the project, including the "Publications of Collegium Carolinum", the proceedings of the "Bad Wiessee Conferences" and the "Publications of the German-Czech and German-Slovakian Historical Commission". New collections in this series will be issued as hybrid publications after a three-year retention period. Publications issued by other publishing houses, such as Schöningh, Otto Sagner and Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, may also be added to the portal.
In addition to this, OstDok will provide researchers with the opportunity to publish the results of their research on-line. In this interest we will make a number of paths to publication available: a "green path" (in which already published texts are republished for a second time) and a "golden path" (for new work to be published for the first time on-line).
Project partners: Collegium Carolinum; Herder Institute, Marburg; Institute for East and Southeast European Studies, Regensburg; Bavarian State Library, Munich
