For Researchers

AU Library offers a number of services to researchers. Anything from help to acquiring the materials necessary for your research, to helping you find the right outlets to publish your research. If you feel that a specific service is missing, you are more than welcome to contact AU Library – and we will try and help you.

Suggest new books

Do you have suggestions for books that you think should be available at the library?

Contact AU Library

If there is any service you as a researcher feel that AU Library could be of assistance with, please feel free to contact your liasion librarian or your local AU library.



AU Library can assist you with publishing your different kinds of materials. We offer guidance on publishing strategies and we offer to publish both journals and e-books through Scholarly Publication Service.


Are you aware of copyright laws when you use other researchers materials in your own works? And are you aware of your own rights when you want to publish your own research? If not, AU Library can help you.


PURE is Aarhus Universitets Institutional Repository. A reseachdatabase, used to collect, maintain and add visibility to publications et al from Aarhus University. This and more on PUREs own website.



Need an insight into your field, or curious about the importance of a specific journal or publication? AU Library is offering assistance with Citation analyses. It can be applied for more than just "quality measurements". Citation analysis is one of two statistical analysis methods, known collectively as bibliometrics.

Open Access

Open Access can help you in making your research papers available online, and thereby more visible. 


AU recommends that researchers create an ORCID iD, which is a researcher-ID. With a researcher-ID you are able to always keep track of your publications. AU Library offers help and guidance in the use of ORCID.


AU Library can help you ensuring that you do not willing or unwilling plagiarize or abuse Responsible Conduct of Research
