Importing from other institutions

If you have moved from an institution that held your publications in a research information system and/or repository, ask them for a RIS or BibTeX file detailing your publications. The publications can be imported into Pure using the above guide. The records may need to be validated by the institution before they appear on the Public Portal and Staff Pages.

If you are leaving the University of Aberdeen and would like a RIS or BibTeX file, please request this from the Pure Team.
