Current members of academic staff and postgraduate research students can log in using their University username and password at pure.soton.ac.uk.
Non-academic staff who have undertaken and published research in the last three years can request a Pure account by contacting email@example.com.
You must upload your journal articles and conference proceedings to Pure within three months of being accepted for publication in order for these publications to be eligible for the next REF. Other types of research output must also be uploaded to Pure before they can be considered for submission to REF and to appear on your personal webpage.

These are automated emails generated by Pure whenever it needs to send you a notification, for instance, if you have been added as an author on a research output. 'Atira' was the name of the company that developed Pure, prior to its purchase by Elsevier.
Whilst it is recommended that you leave your notifications on, you can customise which notifications you receive. Instructions on how to do this can be found in the Pure Manual section 6 - Emails, messages and tasks.
