General rules of archiving

Registered users of the MTMT database can upload their published scientific works (studies, articles, monographs, creations etc.) to the SZTE Repository of Publications in PDF format, provided these are already recorded in MTMT. This archive is part of the Contenta repositories, operated by the Klebelsberg Library.

One can log in to the repository via SZTE eduID authentication. To learn more about SZTE eduID or register one, please visit

The intention of the SZTE Repository of Publications is to make the full text of publications created as a result of scientific and artistic activities at the University available for the widest possible academic audience. Depositing works at the repository secures their long term archiving, and can also increase their viewability and number of citations. This latter is also due to the fact that uploaded documents are indexed by general search engines (e.g. Google, Google Scholar) and professional databases (e.g. BASE, MTA OAI).

Documents deposited at the Repository are normally processed in 5 workdays. Items uploaded as a requirement of certain projects or scholarships are an exception and may take longer, and the high number of these may also increase normal procession time with a few workdays.

Details and rules of uploading data


Starting from the logged-in interface of the MTMT database, after selecting the MTMT record, use the Operations/SWORD Upload option.

Access levels

  1. Open – visible to anyone
  2. Restricted - visible to registered users only. Only registered University citizens can get access to the document, after they log into the repository.
  3. Closed: visible to repository staff only. (A few librarians at the Klebelsberg Library of the University of Szeged, who signed a confidentiality agreement)

Publication related concepts


in press publication (e.g. ’ePub a head of print’ in PubMed)

If the published version cannot be publicly archived (open), the user may want to deposit the postprint version as well. The contents of the postprint is identical to that of the published article, only the format (page setting) may differ, and publishers are usually less strict about granting access to postprint documents.

The repository accepts the preprint version of published documents only if the publisher’s archiving policy does not allow other versions. In this case, following the practice of publishers, the exact publication data of the document have to be indicated on the preprint version.

With the use of the SZTE Repository of Publications users accept the rules described below.

  1. Setting access levels

Journal paper

Concerning journal papers, the primary sources of information about the access level are the publisher’s website and the indications on the full-text of the document.

Another source of publisher copyright and self-archiving policies is the Sherpa Romeo database, which can be used as a general guideline.

Administrators of the repository also process the uploaded documents according to the sources mentioned above.

The access level set by the user is accepted by default, however in the following cases it is changed by the administrator of the repository:

Book, part of book

The access level set by the user is accepted by default, but books and parts of books that are marked as OA by the publisher are also set to Open - visible for anyone in the repository.

In accordance with the institutional archiving policy, it is desirable to set the ’most open’ access level, possibly depositing a postprint version for this reason.
