Pure is the leading research information system used by the University of Southampton to disseminate our research activity. Pure performs strategic decision-making, supports the management of the University’s research performance and enables the expertise of researchers and departments to be more easily discovered.
The reporting capabilities in Pure will help to ensure Open Access compliance and the eligibility of outputs for the next Research Excellence Framework (REF).
Academic staff and postgraduate students will be able to log in to Pure from 20 February 2017.
Pure is intuitive to use but a range of support is already available, including Library and Faculty-based experts and online user-guides which can be accessed via the Pure web pages.
