Pure and ResearchFish
Uploading information from Pure to ResearchFish
Each year, the University is able to upload data held in Pure on grants and their related publications and datasets to ResearchFish.
Researchers are able to link grants (held in Pure as 'Project' records) and publications and datasets directly in Pure throughout the year and the details will be uploaded to ResearchFish ahead of the start of the submission period.
In order to be included in the upload, publications and datasets must have a DOI (publications can also have a PubMed ID and published date) and related projects must have the grant reference listed.
In the past guidance has been sent to PIs and a copy of that guidance is available to view.
