The database does not hold actual material. No assistance w.r.t. ordering material is offered. In order to get a hold of any publications found in this database, follow backlinks to the originating CRIS – it may offer access options. Otherwise, a library (public or research) or the publisher may help.
Why do I not find all the publications and all the researchers that I would expect in The Danish National Research Database?
The Danish National Research Database is based on voluntary participation from the universities and research institutions in Denmark. This is why there is a variation in the research database coverage from one to another institution and from different research fields.
The institutions themselves decide which publications they allow to be part of The Danish National Research Database. Some institutions may not allow harvest of publications, which are accepted or submitted and not yet published.
The database harvests the researcher records exposed by the institutions provided the researchers have published at least one publication.
The National Danish Research Database provides you with a feature for exporting references in the RIS format for use in your bibliographic tool, i.e. Reference Manager, RefWorks or in the BibTeX format for use in LaTeX files, or you can choose to export the references into Mendeley or Zotero — free reference managers designed for researchers, students and academics.
To save a reference just click on the “Save and export” icon next to the record you wish to save and choose the export option in the drop down or use the drop down “Save and export” to export the search result.
In case you don’t need to use a reference manager tool for saving your references, you could choose to copy/paste a reference in APA-, MLA- or Chicago Author Date style in the research database into your reference list. The styles are designed for reference lists. Click on the ‘Cite’-icon next to title and the reference is displayed in the different styles.
Publications and researchers in The National Danish Research Database are harvested directly from the local CRIS systems. Changes in the local systems are automatically updated in the database. Therefore you should contact the institution that provides The National Danish Research Database with the record and ask them to correct the error.
If you use the web browser IE and it doesn’t look like you expect it to, this might be caused by a compatibility problem between Internet Explorer and this site. Please check “Compatibility View Setting” under Tools. Turn off “Display intranet sites in Compatibility View”.
RSS (Rich Site Summary) feeds allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the Danish Research Database.
