It may be easier to answer this by explaining what happens after you upload your publication in Pure.
Some key issues to check:
If none of the above would explain why the publication is not showing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Follow the claims/disclaims process (see ‘Claim / disclaim a Research output’ in chapter 7 of the Pure Manual).
These may have been based on 'Shelves' a functionality that is no longer available since Pure went live. The guidance for replacement Pure functionality is available. (Note ECS/Physics/ORC webpages work in a different way - please contact iSolutions.)
This can happen if there are duplicate records in Pure – contact the ePrints team (email@example.com) and ask them to merge the records.
Each Pure record has two IDs – a short user-friendly id and a UUID that is machine friendly.
The first is visible in the top left hand corner of a saved record. This is a useful ID if you are communicating with the ePrints team.
The second is held in the system information tab on the Display screen. On the left-hand side, locate and click on ‘Display’. On the top right locate and click on ‘System info’. You will find the UUID in the middle of the page. The UUID is required for the creation of key publications and individual publication lists on profile pages in Site Publisher.
See the PDF guide below for how to find UUIDs for Projects and Organisational units.
At the bottom of record’s window is a grey bar which will display ‘Status’ as either ‘in progress’, ‘for validation’, for re-validation’ or ‘validated’.
When you go to your research output the default is to display only those that you are associated with in some way. To be able to search all content click on ‘My content’ and remove the filter
The ePrints team can add outputs for new members of staff (i.e. they joined within the last 6 months). They will also add accepted manuscripts to existing records. Some faculties offer admin support to update records (e.g. FBLA, FEE and FPSE).
The ePrints team (firstname.lastname@example.org) can advise on this.
Add a project relation to your publication/dataset etc. (this is towards the bottom of the edit screen). Most projects have been imported from Agresso – so metadata can be poor for older ones. Try searching by PI name, Grant Number or part of the title.
For unfunded projects you can create one yourself in Pure.
Contact email@example.com for further details.
The ePrints (firstname.lastname@example.org) team will do this where appropriate.
The best way to search is to use the advanced search using title, or uuid.
If the record was added to Pure in the last week, they can also search under Latest Additions in ePrints (ask them to use CTRL+F to search for their record on the page).
If it’s an older record, you can look up the ePrint ID from Pure (look at the bottom of the record for IDs of type 'researchoutputwizard').
They may also be able to search using Google.
Contact the Pure team (email@example.com).
Organisational units in Pure are taken from the HR system. Adding additional units is possible with Associate Dean Research approval, and filling in a form to make the request.
