1. On the top left of Pure, click on “Personal” tab and then click on the “Add Content” button to the right which will open a new window.
2. Click on “research output” in the left-hand navigation.
3. Select “create from template” from the list of source options
4. Select the most appropriate option from the list; hover your cursor over menu items in this window to view explanatory text for each category
5. Once the type is selected you can then select the sub type
6. Each of the main categories has sub categories to the right – ensure that you select the output type that best fits your output
7. Select whether the output is peer-reviewed or not
8. Select appropriate publication status – add publication status and date:
9. Original language - default is English – if in different language change through drop down box – if language is not there, email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will arrange to have it added to the selection
10. Complete as many of the additional metadata fields as possible – this will vary depending on the publication stage
Click on “Add electronic version”, a pop up window will appear
When you have added as much data as possible, if your output is at the publication status of in preparation, or submitted – then change the record status to “Entry in Progress”. If your output is at accepted/in press, epub ahead of print or published change the record status to “for validation”.
If an output has already been validated, and you have made changes to the record, change the record status to “for revalidation” – this will generally be the case with published outputs.
Don’t forget to click on the blue “Save” button (or you will lose all your work!)
Once an output has been validated (metadata and copyright checked by research support staff) it will be made available through the public pure portal – note – outputs that are accepted will only have the metadata available – not the accepted manuscript – this will remain closed until the output has been published.
Note – the same steps can be followed for different output types – though the required fields may vary somewhat – and date of acceptance is not required for outputs other than journal articles and conference proceedings.
