The repository sees his mission in line with the Open Access strategy of the University of Göttingen and its research data policy. It provides all necessary resources to promote and support making the research results of its researchers as widely accessible and usable as possible. This commitment to open access is reflected in the organisational and technical infrastructure as well as in its archiving procedures of the repository to allow the use of publications and data without any access restriction in order “to support research and innovation in science […] and society in a direct and lasting way”. In terms of data management, publication and preservation workflows are based on the Open Archiving Information System, see TextGrid Repository – Digital Object Management.

The commitment is strongly supported by the two relevant institutions ensuring also the long-term sustainability of the repository and its data: The Göttingen State and University Library (SUB) and the Gesellschaft für wissenschaftliche Datenverarbeitung Göttingen mbH (GWDG).


Strategic developments and potential disciplinary innovations concerning the repositories are implemented in two ways:

  • Minor or regular adjustments are provided by the employees of the DARIAH-DE Coordination Office responsible for the TextGrid Repository and the related virtual research environment.
  • Project specific extensions are proposed and developed within the framework of projects, for example CLARIAH-DE, whose Work Package 2 (Tools and Virtual Research Environments), among other things, is concerned with TextGrid. Like every work package within CLARIAH-DE, Work Package 2 conducts regular telephone conferences as well as face-to-face meetings.
