The ETH E-Collection is the institutional repository of the ETH Zurich. This service offered by the ETH-Bibliothek provides an alternative publication platform outside the traditional publishing industry to all members of the ETH Zurich. The materials published here are relevant to research and teaching and can be viewed via the world wide web. All in the ETH E-Collection published documents are centrally recorded and administrated, made accessible in the catalogue of the ETH-Bibliothek according to international standards as well as stored on long term basis.
