Manage your publications in Pure

This guide will assist you on adding and enriching your publications in Pure

Correct existing contributors and affiliations

Both persons and organisations in Pure can be VU-internal (filed shapes) or external (outlined shapes) 

  • persons:  
  • organisations:  

Scroll down to the Contributors and affiliations section of the publication to check if all relations are correct.

 
Make an 'internal' person 'external'

When a publication is imported from an online source, it may happen that it is wrongly related to a profile of a VU colleague that happens to have the same name as one of your external co-authors.

To correct this: click Edit and choose Change person > Make external.

 
Select the correct 'internal' person

The other way around, you may find that a VU colleague was wrongly entered as an external person or that the wrong internal profile was selected.

To correct this: click Edit and choose Change person > Replace.

Start typing in the search field to search the complete Pure database for person records.

The search result will show both internal and external persons.

 
Correct a persons affiliations

By default Pure will select an author's internal VU-affiliations in correspondence with the publication date. This may not always be correct:

  • a publication may have derived from only one of multiple concurrent appointments at the VU.
  • a publication may have derived from a former appointment.
  • a publication may have derived from both a VU-internal and an external appointment.

The page on non-VU publications provides instructions on how to change a person's affiliations.

Add new contributors and affiliations

If you enter a publication in Pure, you will automatically be listed as contributor.

You cannot remove yourself as contributor, but you can Edit your author name, role and affiliations.

You can add co-authors via Add person 

 

Edit personal contribution

The Edit button next to the author name will take you to a pop-up where you can:

  • change the author name on this particular publication.
  • change the role of the contribution (author / editor / illustrator / etc.)
  • select the VU-internal affiliation valid for this publication.
  • select an external organisational affiliation - see non-VU publications.

 
Add new contributors

The Add Person button will take you to a search screen that will first present a selection of your existing co-authors in Pure.

Start typing in the search field to search the complete Pure database for person records.

The search result will show both VU-internal and external persons.

If you can not find a VU-external person, you can use Create external person.

When in doubt: create an new record.

 

Change contributor order 

When you have correctly added all contributors, please make sure they are listed in the correct order.

Use the up and down arrows to change the order:
