SYSTEM UPDATES/FUTURE PLANS
Current version - PURE5.5.3
We last took an update in July 2015, but it was a major update, to move us from the PURE4 line of the software to the new PURE5 line (this means we are on the most up-to-date and stable code that eventually will replace the older version). This also enabled us to take the new REF2020 module to organise and submit our REF submission as we did with REF2014. Other updates included the CV function, Open Access handling and notification improvements, thesis improvements and the addition of 'Press clippings' to the standard interface and an update of the impact template.
Future version - PURE5.6.4
The next planned update to PURE is expected October 2016 which will give major improvements to our Research Database Portal with a number of new fields added to improve usability and the addition of key fields; Output download stats, Abstracs, Bibliographic note, Theses summary, Datasets summary, Projects summary and the licence applied to the work. This release will also see more integration with ORCHID with the ability to populate your ORCID profile from PURE. It will also include the ability to add details on courses taught and Scopus journal metrics and improvements to the way SherpaRoMEO information is displayed.
