Pure upgrades

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

  • [NEW Research output import source] ORCID has been added as an import source for Research outputs (learn how to import publications).
  • To reduce load times, new Profile photos are now limited to 1MB (for Personal users only, previously uploaded pictures that exceed this limit will not be affected).
  • Internet Explorer will no longer be supported by Pure from 5.15.0. From the current version (5.13), Pure will show a yellow notification to users that access the system using Internet Explorer 11 or older. Recommended browsers to get the best Pure/EBR experience are: Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Edge.

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.
