Build your academic profile

Populating your research profile page at QUT via Pure

To populate your Portal page, the records need to be created within the Pure system.  Pure is a separate system from the Researcher Portal but the information flows from Pure into the Portal.  Pure is QUT’s research information management system. 

You can use this link to get to the Pure system:

Information about Pure can be found on the Digital Workplace Pure page.   There is a link to the instruction manual (PDF) as well as a link to the Blackboard site which has detailed information.

Within the Pure system, you have a profile page that can be edited and you can also use the green ‘Add content’ button to create new records.

5 key things to do for your Researcher Profile

  1. Ensure all your work is in PURE
  2. Connect your PURE profile with ORCiD in PURE
  3. Add QUT and the Centre to the affiliation field
  4. Create a Google Scholar Profile, add key subject categories, make public
  5. Disambiguate your researcher ID in Scopus and Clarivate so that your publication record is accurate. i.e. connect the different versions of your name

Check your Pure account to see if there is a Scopus import ‘Task’ waiting to be actioned.  


Note: The lists of import candidates currently include a high proportion of duplicates of outputs that are already in Pure.  In most cases, the existing Pure records are older publications migrated from ePrints but the import candidate from Scopus has minor differences. For newer publications, it may be that a QUT co-author has already imported the record. 


  • Use the ‘Limit’ function to display only ‘non-duplicates’.
  • If you have time, look at each record before hitting the ‘Save’ button. With the record open, you can upload the ‘author accepted manuscript’ version for QUT ePrints or add a Research Centre affiliation (using the Add organisational unit’ button). 
  • If you are in a hurry, just ‘Import and Save’.  Don’t lose your accepted manuscripts though as the ePrints Team will contact you to request the file. 
  • At some stage, look at the ‘possible duplicates’ . Use ‘Remove from this list’ button (unless confident they are not duplicating an existing record).

QUT ePrints

Great way to demonstrate impact beyond academia and attract collaborations Repository Statistics demonstrate attention and readership by displaying downloads counts and patterns, geographical location of the downloads, and have Scopus and Altmetric counts at article level. Providing full-text for readers without journal subscriptions increases the discoverability and reach of your work.
