Use of NECTAR…

We are currently in the process of implementing a Current Research Information System, named Pure, which will become the new platform that you engage with to upload your research outputs… And a whole lot more!

As part of this process, whilst the public facing side of NECTAR will remain, your use of it will come to an end!

I realise how busy you are with Waterside… So in a bid to make this an easier transition, from the 1st of August please do NOT put any items into NECTAR.

If you have a journal article or conference proceeding with an ISSN number that is accepted for publication from the 1st of August until Pure is launched, please email it to nectar@northampton.ac.uk and our team will ensure it is uploaded to meet HEFCE’s open access requirments for the REF (Research Excellence Framework). Please email as soon as it is accepted to allow our team adequate time to meet these requirements.

If you have any other research outputs accepted or published during this time, please hold on to them until Pure is launched! (Expected to launch late October).

Don’t be alarmed… Training will be given in how to use Pure – which is a much more user friendly platform than NECTAR in due course.

If you have any questions or concerns relating to this please email pure@northampton.ac.uk

The Research Support team will be wandering over to Waterside on the 1st of August… Our calendars are always up to date and open to all… So feel free to invite us to meetings at locations of your choice!

Many thanks
