Pure – our new Research Information System

The University’s new Current Research Information System, Pure is now available to all academic and research staff.

Pure provides a single location for staff to store information about their research, such as publications, collaborations, research projects and grants etc and the associations between them. Having been entered into Pure once, data can be used for a variety of purposes, including creating CVs and bibliographies and later this year automatic population of personal web pages. Pure is designed to make it as easy as possible to keep information about research up-to-date, providing ongoing visibility of research activities at the University.

Pure takes data on research from our existing systems (Agresso, SAMIS, iTrent and Opus) and combines it with data stored directly in Pure (e.g. impact and esteem activities) to provide an overview of research at Bath. All academic and research staff have a user profile in Pure giving access to data about their research grants and contracts, publications and post-graduate research students.

Jane Millar, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research, and Project Sponsor, said that the implementation of Pure was a major step forward in how we handle information about our research here at the University: "In an increasingly competitive environment it is essential that we have up to date and accurate information about the excellent research undertaken here at the University. Pure will provide this data and help us to comply with external reporting requirements such as REF2014".
