Research Explorer Upgrade
We are pleased to announce that the upgrade to Research Explorer, the University’s research profile platform has now taken place. As part of this upgrade, you may notice some temporary degradation on Research Explorer whilst the upgrade is configured. We hope to minimise this disruption as much as possible.
Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback to date, we have compiled a selection of feedback into our You Said, We Did document – https://documents.manchester.ac.uk/display.aspx?DocID=64034.
What do I need to do?
You do not need to take any action as part of the upgrade. Your profile will automatically be updated, and your existing data will be transferred. You can continue to manage your research profile as you do now.
You may wish however, to use this opportunity to review your existing profile and ensure it is up to date and/or review the updated training and guidance materials on the Pure website which covers the new functionality available (including Fingerprinting and configuring the UN SDG tags) – https://www.staffnet.manchester.ac.uk/pure/researchers/researcherprofiles/.
