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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com
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!
Head of Research Support

Our Research team from the Computing Department and Moulton College are developing a sensor to detect lameness in sheep. Associate Professor Dr. Ali Al-Sherbaz will be appearing on the BBC One – The One Show tonight at 7pm. Tune in to find out more about this research, how this infection costs UK farming about £80m/yr and whether the solution could lie in a ‘Fitbit’ for sheep.
All staff have access to Yammer… Kind of like facebook for work… In order to give Researcher’s at our University a dedicated space for interaction, helpful files, presentations, links etc, a Research Support group has been created, including information on the REF and RDM. Feel free to join & access these resources! (https://www.yammer.com (log in with your Uni username and password)).
