Leading the way to digital publishing

Our mission is to lead scientific publishing into the digital age and to liberate scientists from fixed deadlines, subject restrictions, long waiting times for reviews and unknown process standards. We combine efficient processes with high quality standards while reducing open access publishing costs.

publish-Ing. is an open access platform for the publication of scientific papers in the field of engineering. The platform aims to establish a new way of scientific publishing through an efficient review organisation in order to shorten review cycle times, building trustworthy review communities and publish exclusively open access. It combines a scientific peer review process to ensure a high quality of the papers with a worldwide freely accessible knowledge repository. We collaborate with renowned institutions, leading scientific societies and the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB). publish-Ing. focuses on three phases of publishing scientific papers:


As a free knowledge repository for high-quality scientific papers, the platform supports the research and processing of current research projects.



A standardised peer review process by a certified community of renowned research institutes ensures the high quality of papers and reviews.



The permanently accessible upload area means that researchers are no longer bound by deadlines, occupied journal slots or subject restrictions.


Introducing : the process

The publication process of publish-Ing. differs from classical processes in all phases of the publication of a paper. But what are the differences?

The publish-Ing. process
The new publication process dispenses with printed journals with fixed deadlines and limited slots. Scientists decide when and what they publish, while we ensure that reviews are accurate and done in a timely manner. Finally, all papers are published open access shortly after your upload and for a fraction of common open access publishing costs.

Setting Review Standards – letting the experts have the last say

All submitted papers will be subject to a peer review process by experienced scientists from renowned research institutes. This ensures a high quality of the papers and reviews according to demanding standards. To ensure a consistent quality third parties always check all reviews. In order to improve the scientific system, publish-Ing. needs the support of scientific institutes from various disciplines. Through their support the institutes have an influence on the quality of the papers published in their own research fields and thereby contribute to the modernisation of the scientific system.

A Win-Win for Science

  • Lower your publication fees and benefit from faster review cycles for your own publications.

  • Improve the quality of papers in your own discipline.

  • Support in the creation of a central and free knowledge repository with verified papers.

  • Establish a continuous knowledge exchange within different scientific communities.

  • Share and view submitted research reports free of charge.

Benefits for scientists
  • Publish all year-round without deadlines, without searching for free slots in journals, without adapting your paper to fit topics of a journal issue and without restrictions regarding the rights to the publication.

  • Trustworthy open access publication of all papers at the TIB, the world's largest specialist library for engineering and nature sciences.

  • Improve your research through high quality reviews conducted by renowned institutes as part of an innovative peer review process.

  • Find your papers on Google Scholar, library repositories or on publish-Ing.

As being the publishing partner for the Conference on Production Systems and Logistics (CPSL) we publish and manage the conference proceedings and the publication and review process of the individual papers. The conference is held every 8-10 months and is organised by the Institute for Production and Logistics Research GbR and its partners. Topics for the conference include production systems, logistics, digitalisation, sustainability and machine learning. Through a broad participation of renowned research institutes, the conference is a platform for the exchange of knowledge and the presentation of current research projects. This can be seen in the wide spectrum of members in the conference committee. You can learn more about the conference here.


Yes, publish-Ing. is an independent publication platform that covers all processes from the initial upload of a paper through the review process to the final publication of the paper. All uploaded papers are reviewed by certified partner institutes. publish-Ing. finds the optimal partner institutes for the reviews (based on the content of the uploaded paper), edits and helps scientists to efficiently publish relevant content. The publishing and distribution of accepted papers is carried out in close cooperation with the the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB). Subsequently, the papers can be found in the TIB's repository, on the publish-Ing. homepage and in all common search engines (e.g. Google Scholar).

To submit a paper to publish-Ing., all you have to do is create a user account, format your paper according to our submission template and upload it. The following processes are completely automated and do not require any action from you. If your paper receives remarks from a reviewer it is on you again - you have to check them carefully and revise your paper conscientiously. If a paper is finally approved by the certified reviewer community, you have to pay the publication fee before it is published by the TIB. As soon as you need to do something during the process, we'll let you know.

For the authors, the added value lies especially in the simple, low-effort and digital processes. Thus, publications can be uploaded at any time. There are no restrictive main topics and no occupied journal slots. A paper only needs to be uploaded. Afterwards, the scientists can track the current status of the peer review process in their profile. After a short time, the reviews (number depends on the requirements of the research sponsors) are available. If no further adjustments are necessary, the article will be published directly by the TIB open access after approval by the authors. In an ideal case, only a few weeks pass between the first upload and the publication of the paper.

The TIB is one of our most important strategic partners. We have firmly integrated the TIB into our processes so that every paper is published and made accessible by the TIB. All papers are stored on the TIB's servers and can thus be accessed permanently and without any restrictions.
