Publications - Can I upload an existing bibliography into Pure?

If you keep publications in BibTeX format, you can import these directly into Pure. If you use a reference management program like EndNote, you can export bibliographies as BibTeX or RIS format and then import them into Pure using the 'import from file' option.

To import a BibTex or RIS file, log onto Pure and click on the green button 'Add new' on the right side. A new window will open. Click on the tab 'Research output', then select option 'Import from file' (on the left underneath the heading 'Research output'). Select the format you want to upload and import the file. You can either copy and paste the BibTeX or RIS data into Pure, or upload the file directly. Sometimes coyping and pasting produces better results.

If you keep a record of your publications in a Word document (or similar), you will not be able to automatically import these publications into Pure as they will not be marked up in a structured format which the system can interpret. Instead, please type in or copy and paste the bibliographic information into Pure templates to create publication records. Please consult Pure support pages for more information on how to create publication record from a template.
