Known issues and release notes

Known issues

Embase import. Due to problems with the Embase API it is temporarily not possible to use the automatic import function of Embase.
UMCG logon. UMCG-users will encounter a problem if they have a P-number enabled active session within their browser, where Pure expects them to use their UMCG-number for access. The single sign on (SSO) mechanism wrongly concludes that the user already has a valid session and passes the P-number enabled session request on to Pure without invoking a pop-up for creating an UMCG-number enabled session.This results in disallowed access.

Release notes

V5.16.4-1 - Released 26 August 2019

“Datasearch”: This new feature allows searching for research data across domains and types, from many domain-specific, cross-domain and institutional data repositories. This data can then be automatically imported into Pure.
Bulk delete functionality (AVG/GDPR): The bulk delete feature introduced in this release provides the ability to bulk delete sensitive fields from person records in Pure.
New personal overview switched on: This overview is tightly integrated with the personal user’s Pure and PlumX data at the research output, project and researcher level. This includes coverage of content added by the user and institution, and PlumX mentions, usage, captures, social media and citation data for each research output where available. This functionality can be switched off by yourself if you prefer to keep the "old" personal overview.

V5.15.2-1 - Released 28 November 2019

Introduction of accessibility toggle to improve accessibility. This however doesn't work properly yet.
Files added to datasets will only be shown on the portal after validation

Adding a Scopus ID to a profile no longer switches of the automated search for that person.

V4.33.2 - Released 1 July 2019

Migration of highlighted content CV: Pure now surfaces highlighted content from a new unified location in the personal user profile. This content can now be found in the Personal Overview > Edit Profile > Highlighted content Before this release highlighed content was maintained in the CV section of Pure.
Portal fixes and changes

On the personal research page you may notice the following changes:

  • Fixed: Activities with status 'revalidation' are shown again on the portal and profile pages.
  • Fixed: No more error messages will be shown at activities of the templates Participation in conference and Organizing an event.
  • The ‘advanced search’ option is made available on the personal research pages on the portal
  • Activities related to participating in or organizing an event used will not cause a "Render error" anymore and should be shown normally now.
  • Activities with status "for revalidation" will remain visible on the portal.

V4.32.4 - Released 26 February 2019

Occasionally an error occurred while importing research output from Web of Science, after this release this error will not occur anymore.

V4.32.2 - Released 31 January 2019

The possibility for you to change your activities in Pure after they have been approved. The 're-validation' workflow ensures that the activities that you changed will be checked (and approved) again.
Portal fixes and changes
On the personal research page you may notice the following changes:
  • In the tab Publications the short links to categories (for example Journal Contributions, Book Contributions) have been removed. This is because these categories were not defined properly, thus sorted confusion. Now all publications are shown, sorted by publication date from new to old (by default). You can still adjust the sorting criterium to your needs. We are working on an advanced search option. This option will become available in the summer.
  • A new tab Supervised Thesis appears if any thesis have been published under the author's (co-)supervision.

Portal Changes
  • Datasets are added to the portal. There is a submission guide available about how to add datasets to Pure.
  • Projects are added to the portal. Please note that there are currently no projects registered in Pure yet. Therefore the project module is not shown on the portal. Once there are projects added to Pure a Projects menu will become visible on the portal.

This release has solved the problem that for current staff members with no (active) affiliation to a research unit, the overview and statistics tabs were not shown (anymore) on their personal research page. Furthermore, it has also solved the issue concerning the graph of relations, which were also not visible (anymore) on the personal research page of these staff members.
The disappereance of the close and cancel buttons when trying to edit multiple internal or external persons is resolved with this issue.

V.4.27.2-2 - Released 16 June 2017

Features and Fixes
Research content of former staff members can now be shown on the website. Please note that these are only published after approval by the former staff member. The approval process for this is still under construction (by departments HR and Communication).

Updates model Activities, Prizes and Press/Media

  • This release features new submission templates for Activities. Please have a look at the updated submissions guide for further information on the changed templates.
  • A new content type for Prizes has been added to Pure, enabling users to capture prominent professional distinctions which illustrate their esteem and demonstrate recognition within their professional field. This results in these professional distinctions becoming much more prominent in Pure.
  • In this release the existing Press Clippings module with various 'media contribution' Activities are consolidated into a single content type called Press/Media. This consolidation enables the capture of all press/media activity (whether active or passive) in a single content type, rather than as separate Press Clipings and Activities.
New online source: EBSCO. The following databases are activated in EBSCO: ATLA, ERIC, EconLIT, PsycINFO and SocINDEX. You can manually search EBSCO in Pure. When you find a publication that is yours you can easily import it in Pure.

Portal Changes

In conjunction with the updates to Activities, Prizes, and Press/Media data models (see above), the Pure Portal has been enhanched and updated to accommodate the revisions to the respective modules. Other content types have also been added to the Pure Portal and the display of some existing content types has been updated. This release includes the following updates to the Pure Portal:

  • Inclusion of Prizes and Press/Media (instead of Press Clippings)
  • Updated display of:
    • Activities
    • Press/Media
