Research Information Management changes frequently, with changes to Research Excellence Framework, Open Access requirements and increasing demand from Research Funders and our own researchers.

PURE and the service that it offers needs to be kept up to date. This can be achieved by taking the major version releases of Pure each year. Additionally, PURE will only support redundant features for one year following their deprecation. It is vital that the University’s installation of Pure is kept up to date to avoid major step changes.

This project is a follow-on project from the RIS003.

The scope of this Pure project is to upgrade the University’s installation for  the following versions 5.13, v5.14 (later de-scoped 31/7/19) and v5.15 ensuring that it continues to operate as expected including:

  • Testing of the Pure processes adopted by the University
  • Testing of the Interfaces presenting data to Pure from Finance, HR, VRS and Student Systems
  • Testing of the outgoing interfaces to the Pure widget and EdWeb

This will ensure that Pure upgrades are supported with supplier, to support REF processes (including a mock REF) including preparation for REF2021.
