(12 May 2017)
A new view of student theses metadata records and associated files is now available in Pure.
The new view includes all final examined postgraduate research theses which have been made Open Access (non-embargoed), stored within Manchester eScholar since 2010. If a final postgraduate research thesis was previously made available via eScholar, it will be available via the ‘UoM administered theses’ tab on the left hand menu in Pure.
Supervisors named on theses can also view these records in Pure. Please see the ‘Supervisor’s perspective’ section on page two of our handy guide which explains how to access these records.
All student theses in Pure will be available on both supervisor and student profiles in the Research Explorer. If you are a supervisor and would prefer student theses not to display in the Research Explorer, please contact the library to request this.
Theses submitted prior to 2010, or which are currently embargoed, will not display in Pure.
Please note that if you wish to record details of a thesis submitted at another institution, or examined at Manchester prior to 2010, you can do so by creating a research output record with the sub type of Thesis.
New training videos available
A series of ‘Getting Started’ training videos are now available for Pure first time users covering a range of introductory topics such as logging in, navigating and searching for content. The videos can be accessed via the Pure Support website.
Helpful tip – highlighting your content
Pure has the ability to create what’s known as a ‘highlighted content CV’. This allows you to choose some of your outputs to highlight on the Overview tab of your profile. This allows visitors to your profile to more easily see research activity you have chosen to feature. Information explaining how to create both a public and highlighted content CV is available in the Pure short guide.
