Pure: beyond registration of scientific output

by | 30 Nov 2017

New developments and user experiences to feed research intelligence

This autumn the yearly Pure International Conference was organised in Barcelona. New technical and functional developments of the Pure system and use cases were shared.

Some highlights from the conference

  • Metrics  
    Plum Analytics is part of Elsevier since this year and will be integrated within Pure: publications can be enriched with information of usage, capture, mentions, social media and citations. Altmetric can also be made available within Pure (use case @ Manchester University)
  • Visibility
    Fingerprinting is key in terms of visibility and discoverability: Pure is working on tooling for more accurate fingerprinting options including activities, prices, education and press media
  • Reporting and assessment
    Pure is developing a new report module
    A Pure Community Portal will become available in spring 2018. The module consists of a special Pure environment with a harvesting service, so output information derived from linked CRIS systems can be made visible: joint reporting / showcasing on content.
  • Discovery
    Award management and funding discovery: Pure ideas of linking registered ongoing research to potential funding possibilities for further research
  • More
    Manchester University has identified four use cases for the advanced Pure reporting tool with an integration of metrics, using ORCiD as the essential identifier
    At Copenhagen University experiments with visualisation of Pure data led to nice results
    Belfast University positions Pure explicitly for monitoring (and supporting) research policy

All presentations of the conference are now available.
