About PURE and PURE Data

PURE is a research information tool for use by you as an individual member of staff or as an academic manager. It provides access to data held in University systems about your research and innovation activities and allows you to add additional research or enterprise data.

It also is used to feed certain data about you to publicly accessible UEA websites such as UEA Digital Repository and the People Pages.

PURE is managed by RIN in conjunction with ISD, LIB and ARM and supported by UEA's Research Executive and ISD Research Board.

Data from University systems that feed to PURE:

  • Data about you, your School and group links fed from UEA's HR system via SPOT
  • Data on your research and other projects and applications from PMA/ABW
  • Data on your PGR supervision from SITS
  • Data about your intellectual property, licenses and enterprise projects from MyIP (coming soon)

Data in PURE, as may be relevant, will be used:

  • To feed to UEA's Digital Repository
  • To feed to UEA's People Pages
  • To support School Research Activity Plans (which have replaced RPlan)
  • To submit for REF2020

Within PURE you can add/edit or amend certain data held on PURE about your research and/or your profile. Please see our User Guide and Forms page to access user guides to help you get the best out of PURE.
