You may have heard about the new research management repository – Pure. When Pure fully launches on Wednesday 17th April, it will also contain all the outputs which would have previously been available in EHRA (Edge Hill Research Archive). All research outputs will have a new home in Pure.
The new system isn’t available to Edge Hill staff or the public via the portal quite yet, we are busy building the system in the background.
During the preparation time, you won’t be able to submit any outputs. The previous online form you may have used to get in touch with Library and Learning Services has now been retired.
When we launch Pure – which is entirely browser-based so you can access it on any device, smartphone, PC or Mac, using your Edge Hill log-in details – you will be able to deposit your outputs using the publication and research type templates available within Pure. This will make for a quicker and simpler process. The Research Support Team in Library and Learning Services will be available to help you with deposits and Open Access questions and queries.
There will be several training sessions to help you with deposits and the Open Access agenda, we will let you know more details when we have launched the system. If you would like to contact us to arrange training email RefCompliance@edgehill.ac.uk
Library and Learning Services are responsible for the management of the repository within Pure and can be contacted via REFCompliance@edgehill.ac.uk.
This post has been amended: the launch date for Pure was originally listed as April 5th
