FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

TECHNICAL QUESTIONS:

What username and password should I use?
Your username is [AUID] @ uni.au.dk (not your student email). Password is your normal AU password.

I cannot enter the page where I need to fill out the form. What should I do?
Try using a different browser by copying the link into the address bar of a browser e.g. Chrome or Firefox. Safari in particular can present challenges with opening the form. If you still cannot access this page, you can contact us via this contact form.

DEFINITION

I do not write a business thesis. Do I still have to fill out the form?
Yes. Even if you have not written a thesis in collaboration with a company or organization, it is important that you still fill out the form, as you also have to answer whether your thesis contains confidential material and whether it must be published on the Royal Danish Library.

I do not have a written agreement with the company / organization. Could it be a business special?
Yes. An oral agreement with a company about collaboration is also an agreement, so you may well agree that it is a business thesis.   

CONFIDENTIALITY

Will it affect the confidentiality agreement with the company I have entered into, if I answer yes here?
No. The question of confidentiality here is only about how the thesis is handled when it has to be plagiarized. It has no consequences for an agreement/contract already concluded.

I have already entered into a confidentiality agreement with the company, do I need to fill out the form?
Yes. The question of confidentiality here is only about how the thesis is handled when it has to be plagiarized.

I am asked about confidentiality in the Digital Exam upon delivery - what do I do?
You must also answer (unambiguously) the question of confidentiality in the Digital Exam, as unfortunately, it is not yet possible to transfer data between the two systems.

PUBLISHING

I have canceled my consent to publish. What should I do?
You can always withdraw your consent to publish. If you wish to withdraw your consent for publication, you must send an email (from your AU mail) to the Royal Danish Library. (pure@au.dk) with your student number and information that you want to withdraw your consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time.

Why can't I answer yes to publishing - the field is locked in the form?
If your thesis contains confidential information, it must not be published on the Royal Danish Library, and that option is therefore locked in the schema.
If it is a mistake and the thesis does not contain confidential material, you can change the answer to that question and then it becomes possible to answer yes to publishing.

I have already submitted my assignment. Do I still have to fill out the form?
Yes. The form must be completed by all students who have submitted their thesis or have been in project placement course during the current semester.

May I publish a thesis containing copyright material?
No. If you answer yes to the publication on the Royal Danish Library, make sure in advance that your thesis does not contain copyrighted material.

What are the rules regarding double publishing? / What should I answer when it comes to publishing on the Royal Library, when my thesis should also be published on a publishing house or other?
It depends on the agreement you made with the other publisher. Contact this person for answers. If in doubt, choose no to avoid duplicate publishing.
