PURE is NOVA’s Current Research Information System (CRIS). Information held in PURE relates to research staff and their publications and activities information. The system allows for relationships and associations to be created between research inputs and outputs, providing a broad picture of research activity at individual, department, research unit, academic unit and University levels.
In addition to providing many of NOVA’s current research management and reporting needs, data from PURE is also used to populate the NOVA Research Explorer, which provides a public view on the University's research activity. Units are also able to access data held in PURE to feed information into their own local web presence, such as publication lists and staff profiles.
PURE is fully interoperable with ORCID (get to know the advantages), taking advantage of NOVA’s institutional partnership, and allowing for all content uploaded in PURE to be exportable to ORCID. In this way, NOVA is in line with the recent Ciência Vitae - national scientific curriculum management system, based on the DeGóis technological platform, allowing NOVA researchers to feed their profile with the data loaded in ORCID (see the support manual).
