Relevant for VDB?

Relevant for the VDB means relevant for the publication database of your institution. As the system allows you to also store bibliographic data for publications that you need for your work or easy reference, you need to provide information on whether the publication you entered is relevant for the publication database. Please select yes here if it is relevant for the publication database, and no if it is not.

Please note that only publications that are marked yes will be reviewed by the library. It will then appear in the publication database of your institution and used for the scientific reports. All other publications will be added to your institute’s private collection only.


All academic publications in terms of RWTH Publications are “relevant for PDB”. These entries are edited and released by us. Please therefore choose “yes” here. You should classify all other documents as being not relevant, in other words, click “no”. You can use these document types for your internal document management. Editorial checks will not be carried out for these documents.

VDB-relevant yes means your entry is visible in the Internet, is listed as a publication of the GSI and will be used for your department lists in web pages, reviews etc.

Select no, if you want to restrict your entry to your department or for your own publication list (e.g. entering publications with other affiliations). After selecting no you will see the new field Special Selection for further section.
