Research Impact Tips


Most of the analyses we conduct are requested by individual researchers, groups or departments at the University of Groningen. A starting point and  data source for the publications of these individuals or groups is Pure, UG's research information system (CRIS). Pure keeps a record of all research output of individuals affiliated with the university. Therefore, it is crucial that Pure is up-to-date and containing a comprehensive record of your research output. To learn more about Pure and how to update your profile or seek support from the Pure support team, please visit their webpages.

Correct Affiliation

The Pure system uses an automated process to pull publications from large scholarly databases such as Scopus and Web of Science. To correctly identify your publications, it is of utmost importance that you follow the University of Groningen guidelines on how to spell out your affiliation on your publications.


ORCID is the most common unique digital identifier that helps funders, publishers, research administration and scholarly database providers to correctly and uniquely associate research output with a particular researcher. We strongly advise everyone from the research staff at the university to sign up for an ORCID if you don't already have one.
