Important information about the database login

  1. You have enrolled as doctoral researcher at RUB and have a doctoral student card with chip?
    In this case nothing has changed. You can log in to the database with a chip card reader and your doctoral student card via the login page to complete your registration as explained below

  2. You were a student at RUB and changed to a doctorate after August 2020?
    You may have received a doctoral student card without a chip, but still have your student card with a chip. In this case you can use your student card for the login procedure with a chip card reader and log in to the Doctoral Database to complete the registration. Of course you can also use the option with the registration form if your student card is no longer valid. Please send the completed form to database-rs@rub.de. We will transfer the data into the Doctoral Database and carry out the registration for you.

  3. You have enrolled as doctoral researcher at RUB for the first time after August 2020?
    In this case you have received a doctoral card without a chip and therefore cannot use the chip card reader for login in the Doctoral Database.
    Please fill out the registration form and send it to database-rs@rub.de. We will transfer the data to the Doctoral Database and carry out the registration for you.
