PURE GOLD – About the indicator project at AU

Due to the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation’s “indicator project”, the Danish universities earn funds by registering their employees’ research publications.

On this and the following pages, you can read more about what the indicator project means for Aarhus University, and how you should relate to it when you use PURE.

Background

In 2008, the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation launched the indicator project – also called “the bibliometric research indicator”.This project is concerned with recording the extent and form of the academic/scientific publication that takes place at the Danish universities.The records are based on whatever is registered in the PURE system.

The result of the indicator project’s collection of data forms the basis for a financing model according to which part of the universities’ basic funds are allocated.In practice, this means that the amount and type of publications registered in PURE at AU have a direct impact on the university’s financial situation.

Overall aim

The indicator project aims to motivate researchers in all fields to publish in the best acknowledged and most prestigious channels of publication.

The annual deadline

The deadline each year for updating data for the indicator project is 1 March – by this date, all publications from previous years must be entered in PURE so that the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation can draw on the figures.
