Data policy in Pure

It is mandatory for AU researchers to register the publications that they produce in the scheme of AU in Pure.

Publications registered in Pure form a decision base and are used in the following contexts:

  • AU Key Statistics is an annual report with central statistical numbers about AU, including the production of research output for the year.
  • Calculation of points according to Den Bibliometriske Forskningsindikator (BFI), that in part determines the allocation of block funding.
  • AU Management Reports for all faculties and institutes etc. at Aarhus University.
  • Researchers' personal AU homepages

The table below shows which Pure data is shared and which organisations it is shared with. Write AU Pure at if you have question about how your data is shared.
