Automated search

Automated search is a functionality that can automatically scan a number of selected online databases for publications that might belong to you as researcher. The task of keeping your publication list up to date can be time consuming. By setting up an automated search this task can easily be facilitated.

Duplicates after automated search

If you found a record with automated search and try to import it, Pure will alert you if there are existing duplicates. It is possible that there is better quality information on the imported record. If Pure finds a duplicate, you will be able to compare the information.

Once you have checked for any added value in the old record, you can transfer any fields you wish to keep to the new record. After this you can delete the old record. If you are a contributing author or have editing rights in Pure, you can delete the old record by clicking the red cross at the bottom right page of the window.

If you are not able to delete a record, please send an email to describing why the record should be deleted (e.g. "duplicate").
