Researcher Development

Pure: an introduction

Course code: RSPAI 
Topic: Research Governance & Organisation

Course description

Pure is the University's research information system, designed to be a single source of information about our research. Pure takes data from Agresso, SAMIS and iTrent and combines it with data stored directly in Pure (e.g. impact and esteem activities) to provide an overview of research at Bath. Pure also interfaces with Opus, the University's open access research repository which collects and showcases research publications by University of Bath authors.
This course will give you an overview of Pure and the data that are provided. It will also demonstrate how to add new content to Pure including uploading appropriate copies of your publications to make them open access. Finally, you will learn how to export your data from Pure in the form of a research activity report for appraisal, probation and promotion procedures.
