Pure, in their words

Timmy Liu

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia

[We chose Pure] for two reasons. One is because we were looking for the leader in the industry and the other one is the support that they can provide.

Amanda Shepherd

Charles Sturt University, Australia

Pure has given us the capability to report on the full spectrum of our research activity and showcase that to the external world. It’s also allowed us to streamline our business processes in the management of research, and it gives us an intuitive interface for our users to engage with.

Amanda Shepherd, Data and Reporting Manager, Research Department, Charles Sturt University, Australia

Dr. Anesh Nair

University of Canberra, Australia

"The end-to-end streamlined research data management process made possible by the integration helps us adopt best practices for data management and create a secure data environment for all research stakeholders."

President Dr. Yun Yen

Taipei Medical University, Taiwan

At this moment, we have about 300 grant approvals from the government a year. With Pure, we have a great tool to facilitate TMU’s research momentum, and we’re primed to take on the leading role now.

Santhosh Krishnan Venkata

Manipal Academy of Higher Education, India

On a smaller level our home-grown system was fine, but to scale it to all faculty members we needed a solution that could automate the work and ensure data becomes fully trustworthy for reports and our public profiles.

Pure gives us access to complete, current, correct and connected information on all of our research activities.

Aija Kaitera

University of Helsinki, Finland

…we’ve been using Pure on a regular basis, so we use it on annual reporting on publications to the Ministry of Education and Culture. And then we do an ad hoc analysis on the data. So, we’re using it all the time and researchers know that we use it. And then, of course, the publicity you get through the portal, that’s a very important encouragement for researchers.

Aija Kaitera

Anne Thorst Melbye

University of Southern Denmark, Denmark

…we try to be all over it and encourage our researchers to register their publications but also their activities — going to conferences, and so on.

Anne Thorst Melbye, University of Southern Denmark

Bernard Detrembleur

University of Namur, Belgium

[Pure]…is as easy to use as Facebook… Lots of features are very, very useful on the platform, but from…an administrator perspective, one of the best systems is the report. It’s helping my life when I have to deliver some reports to a dean, or to a user, or to the director of the platform.

Bernard Detrembleur, University of Namur, Belgium

Dimitri Unger

Vrije Universiteit, The Netherlands

The main issues [that Pure solved] were reporting to certain government institutions and our yearly reports. And, besides that, to profile our researchers on a portal so they could be more visible to the outside world.

Dimitri Unger, Vrije Universiteit, The Netherlands

Laura Turner

The University of Manchester, UK

Pure really helped us to solve a number of different business issues that we had and one of the things that it helps us with the most is managing our REF submission, which is really important to us in the UK at the moment. It also is a system that allows us to have a very high quality of data.

Laura Turner at Pure International Conference 2019

Mark Cox

King’s College London, UK

…the best feature of Pure is the fact that it is so interconnected. The data model is wonderful for making the connections between all the various content types within the system.

Aarhus University, Denmark

Pure matures according to the challenges and the realities that the universities in Denmark are faced with.

Steven Van den Berghe

Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium

the old system, it wasn’t that it wasn’t advanced at all, but there were just things that we couldn't do with it, like the standardized reporting, the activities… There was nobody at the university who would generate the CV from the old system…now with the new system [Pure] we do find that we get a lot of questions from researchers that actually want to do more.

Steven Van den Berghe, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium

Tiago Guedes

Nova University, Portugal

“I think the system really shines when it’s fully integrated…you get the original source data from Scopus, but then you can actually edit it and manage it in Pure. So, the quality of data that you're getting in SciVal is much better [and] you can guarantee the Deans that you’re not losing as much data as if they were using only Scopus.”

Tiago Guedes, Nova University, Lisbon, Portugal

Yvonne Fox

Lancaster University, UK

“We used Pure to put together our submission to the Research Excellence Framework... It made putting that information together so much easier because it was so much more transparent. We were able to bring all of our outputs together into one place and to build a past submission over a matter of months… when we were happy it was completely together, we actually used Pure just to interface directly to the Research Excellence Framework submission system, so it made my life so much easier.”

I don’t know what we would have done without Pure and Research Expert Profiles during COVID-19. We’ve used it so much, from reporting on our work to showcasing our experts.

Melodi Moore Research Development Specialist, UTMB Research Administration, U.S.

Bonnie Nelson

RTI International, USA

[Researchers ask] can you track our project funding against the growth of research from that funding? Can you tell us how many books, chapters, articles there are? Is there a growth in articles? Are we publishing in higher impact journals? It’s just made it really easy to have all the information in one place, visible.

Bonnie Nelson, RTI International, USA

Jan Fransen

University of Minnesota, USA

“Librarians are often called on to help faculty put together lists of everything they've written… By using Pure, we can pull all of that together in one place much more easily and give our librarians a way to help their departments in a different way.”

Jan Fransen, University of Minnesota, USA

Karen Ramsden

Montclair State University, USA

…faculty love to use it because they can show what each other are doing and showcase what their schools are doing. Our Deans like to look at it, and our Chairs because then they can also see from their respective school and college what kind of output is happening scholarly. And, interestingly enough, our administrative units like to look at it…especially our fundraisers…they can look and see what kind of research is being done at the university when talking to grantmakers, potential donors, existing donors, and alumni.

Karen Ramsden, Montclair State University

Mark Nijland

University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, USA

"Moving to Pure has given us a whole new perspective on how we can connect research productivity to faculty, and we look forward to using it to help faculty maintain faculty research productivity metrics."

Mark Nijland, UT Health San Antonio, USA

Michelle Hutnik

Pennsylvania State University, USA

I’m the Director of Research Analytics — I’m trying to find and make connections with people and researchers across campus. I can do a keyword search and I can instantly find, not just one person but people who are doing similar research, very easily with the Find similar profiles feature.
