Pure profiles and content for postgraduate research students

Pure is the University’s Research Information Management System (RIMS); it brings together research information from multiple disparate sources on one platform, offering a comprehensive summary of all research activities — from research funding to its global impact. 

Information held in Pure relates to staff and students involved in research, their research outputs and scholarly activities. Combined information from individual research profiles allows a broad overview of the research activity at the individual, Research Institute, School, College, and University level. 

Information/content related to research includes: 

  • Research outputs or publications, e.g. journal articles, book chapters, software, exhibitions 

  • Research activities, e.g. chairing/organising/attending conferences, membership of committees, editorial or peer-review of scholarly articles 

  • Research or academic related prizes  

Pure profiles and content can be made publicly available on the Edinburgh Research Explorer (ERE).
