Mandatory Statement of Affiliation for all TUM Members

To ensure maximum visibility for all research done at TUM, every publication should be clearly and accurately cited in abstracts and literature database such as Web of Science or Scopus. This aim is supported by the newly updated TUM Publication Guidelines.

The guidelines define a binding and standardised statement of affiliation in German and English and are mandatory for all TUM researchers and employees as well as for scientists performing and publishing research as guests at TUM.

The updated version, which was revised in cooperation with the Bibliometrics Team of TUM University Library and approved by the TUM Board of Management, contains several new requirements compared to the first edition. You will now find additional information on:

  • Affiliation statement in case of permanent or temporary affiliation with multiple research institutes
  • Affiliation when changing institutes
  • Affiliation in case of external doctoral projects
  • Transition of TUM to school and department designations
  • Funding acknowledgements

The guidelines are available in German and English online via mediaTUM or on the TUM website in the section Governing Documents.

If you have any questions about your affiliation statement, TUM Library will be pleased to advise you and will support you in submitting or updating author profiles in literature databases or profile services: sends e-mail)
