How do I validate?

About validation

Validation of a publication is the final stamp of approval, assuring that the information is correct and adequate.

Publications in Pure are used in various processes at Aarhus University:

  • Allocation of funds through the Danish Bibliometric Research Indicator, primarily known as BFI
  • AUs key figures: benchmarking tool and documentation towards the development contract
  • Management information on every level of the university
  • Content for the researchers personal page on AUs web pages.

Validation must always be carried out through a comparison between the original publication and the corresponding Pure registration.

If you are in doubt as to how you obtain access to a publication, you can get advice from your local branch of AU Library. If you have questions regarding validation you can contact your local Pure contact person or write to the central Pure support: see support options
