Research datasets

Pure allows you to

  • create a metadata record to describe your dataset and link your other research output to your dataset;
  • acquire a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to publish your dataset’s metadata record to Edinburgh Research Explorer so that you receive recognition for your work and direct other researchers to your datasets.


Please refer to the Dataset Documentation Reference Guide for Pure Users for instructions on how to use Pure for your datasets.  


This simple flowchart provides an excellent, illustrated view of how you can use Pure to describe (record) your dataset, acquire a DOI, publish your Pure record to Edinburgh Research Explorer or deposit your dataset in DataVault.
