Registering research at Danish universities

One of the key tasks of many universities and academic libraries today is to ensure that they register their own research publications in order to achieve a large degree of registration uniformity, thus increasing the visibility and accessibility of their research.

Most Danish research institutions use PURE as a registration tool to ensure the standardised registration of publications in Denmark.

Registrations in PURE are automatically reported to the Ministry of Higher Education and Science and are used as a basis for allocation of basic funding to Danish universities (The Danish Bibliometric Research Indicator).

All registered research is also sent to the Danish National Research Database, which is a national entry point for searching metadata from Danish academic publications. Since December 2014 open access has been available to approximately 52,000 of these publications.

Google Scholar also receives many Danish research publications and thus allows you to send your research out into the world when you register in your local research registration system.
