Explore Bristol Research (Pure Portal)

The Explore Bristol Research Portal is the website for the University's research. The EBR Portal holds information about the research of our members, including publications, theses, projects, prizes, datasets and activities. The Portal also includes profiles for all current academic staff and post graduate research students, and descriptions of the research environment within each School and Department. 

The content of the EBR Portal comes from the University Research Information System, Pure. 

The EBR Portal hosts tens of thousands of full-text manuscripts and research theses. These are made openly available to the public with terms of use

What do I need to do?

If you want to amend anything in your profile, including Fingerprinting and Maps, you can do so via Pure. If your profile does not already include a photo and research interests, we encourage you to add these. Data imported from HR systems or SITS must be updated at source, and will then feed into Pure.
