The University of Southampton


The University is at the forefront of promoting openness in research and with the implementation of Pure, a leading research information system, we are realising an exciting development in the dissemination of our research activity.

Pure informs strategic decision-making and supports the management of the University’s research performance. It also enables the expertise of researchers and departments to be more easily discovered, promoting our specialisms and increasing opportunities for collaboration.

What do researchers use Pure for?

Researchers must use Pure to deposit their research outputs for open access on the web and for submission to the next Research Excellence Framework (REF). In addition, researchers can use Pure to:

Pure can create customised CVs from the stored information and, in future, will be used to update the web profiles of researchers, departments and projects on the University website.

For information and guidance on using Pure, please see the Pure Support link above or visit our Pure SharePoint site, Pure Soton (requires University login).
