Guidance on the Research Activity Report

Research Activity Report Overview

The Research Activity report has been developed to support SDPR, probation and promotion processes. The report is simple to use and will easily and quickly collate all your relevant research information.

  1. For SDPR the report should be run for the last two years and submitted with your completed SDPR form.
  2. If you are going to be submitting either a probation or promotion case then the Research Activity report will need to be inserted into your probation and promotion report template in order to meet the requirements of the Academic Staff Committee.

We recommend that you log in to Pure and run the report as soon as possible in order to see what data you currently have within Pure. You can ensure the end date for the report captures future planned activity by selecting a future end date.
