Pure is part of the University's Comprehensive Research Information System (CRIS) and is used to record details of research activity at the institution.

Pure holds all University research activity including academic details such as Faculty, School and Research Institute. It enables the user to record all research publications, projects and activities, evidence of impact and press clippings. Pure allows related activities to be linked together to build a very comprehensive overview; for example a project can link to a publication, that in turn links to an impact statement.

Access to Pure has been provided to academic-research staff and staff involved in research support. Additional requests for access should be submitted to for consideration.

Open Access and REF Eligibility

Pure assists open access compliance for academics including eligibility for the next REF by enabling research outputs to be deposited in the institutional repository; USW Research Explorer. Please visit the Open Access Policy pages to find out more information.
