How do I change my name in Pure?

Question

The name showing in Pure is not the one I use for publishing, how do I change my name?

Answer

The name showing in Pure is not the one I use for publishing, therefore I am not being matched/recognised in Pure, only as an external author

Publications are not directly matched to your name, because it differs from the official registered name in PeopleSoft of the University. We advice you to change your preferred first name into the most used name for publishing. This way matching in Pure wil improve.

Solution: set your preferred first name via MyUniversity.rug.nl

○ Login at MyUniversity.rug.nl and go to:

■ Self service

■ Change personal details

■ Options Display Name , then EDIT NAME

■ Change Preferred First

■ Click OK, and SAVE ; the next day this new name wil appear in Pure and your name will be matched better with new publications.
