Academic Publication Management (PUMA)

The Stuttgart University Library provides the Academic Publication Management (PUMA). PUMA is an open source web application based on BibSonomy and offers different possibilities such as: 

  • user-login/authentication with your ac-, fn or st-account
  • manage literature online
  • automatic transfer of bibliographic information (metadata) from different catalogues 
  • dynamic output of bibliographies (e.g. your own publication list or the institute's publication list) via plugin on your own website (OpenCms, WordPress, Typo3) or on different systems choosing from a variety of citation styles
  • share your bibliographies publicly or in groups 
  • file-upload (pdf, dpc, ppt, jpg, etc…)
  • send your publication metadata to the university bibliography
  • transfer of your own publications to the document server OPUS
  • import and export of data in different standardized data formats (BibTeX, Endnote, CSL…)

During the winter semester 2017/18 we are offering six trainings to introduce you to PUMA. Further trainings for institutes or other special requests on demand. 

You can find background information about PUMA on

Hereafter you can find an example for a dynamically imported bibliography from PUMA.

There was used the PUMA plugin for OpenCms on this free text page “Freitextseite” with the following settings: 

  • User account “droessler”
  • All publications with the tag “politik”
  • Displaying in the citation style IEEE, sorted by year (descending) and author 

You can find a clearly layed out and detailed documentation of the plugin at the type catalogue of the TIK.
