Pure will be upgraded to vs 5.15.0 on Tuesday 20 August.

This will mean that Pure and Explore Bristol Research will be unavailable throughout the day on Tuesday 20 August. Following the upgrade, Personal Users will see some small changes to the Edit Profile options, in particular an extra option in the menu to add ‘Highlighted Content’. Details will be updated in the ‘How to edit your Pure profile’ following the upgrade. All Pure users will see minor interface changes include the positioning of favourites and browsing history, and the appearance of tasks and notifications. This version of Pure will also have a much richer REF functionality which the REF team are looking forward to working with. We apologise for the disruption this will cause while the upgrade is carried out.

Pure upgrades

Last month Pure and Explore Bristol Research (EBR) were upgraded to vs 5.13.2. Highlights:

Researchfish publications upload from Pure

The main Researchfish submission period opened today and will run until 14th March 2019. PIs may be interested to know that there is a bulk upload of award/publication relations from Pure into Researchfish.

This service means that if you have already made a relation between your project and your research outputs in Pure you will not need to add it again to Researchfish (find out how to relate Pure records). The Pure team will upload any qualifying relations from Pure to Researchfish on the 7th and 14th February (Researchfish turn the bulk upload off on the 15th February).

Bear in mind that not all relations qualify. Follow the link for more information about the publications upload from Pure (includes criteria). Contact research-outcomes@bristol.ac.uk if you have further questions.

New Pure training dates now released

Further Pure training sessions are finally available. Notice these are for research administrators/managers and staff with similar roles. PGRs, academic staff and research administrators can come along to our drop-ins for one to one help. Book training and check future drop-ins.
