Release 5 provides users with further research networking and funding discovery capabilities

June 2014

This release of Pure further enhances the system's research networking capabilities, which resulted from the integration of SciVal Experts into Pure earlier in the year. Customers with the Pure Experts Portal can now join SciVal Experts customers and choose to be part of the Experts Community. The Community – made up of over 50 international institutions and containing over 80,000 profiles - increases cross-institutional collaboration by allowing users to simultaneously search for a subject area expert both inside and outside of their own institution. Current SciVal Experts customers also benefit from the advanced reporting, administration and CV modules provided by migrating to Pure 5.
