Manage your publications in Pure

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

Upload the full-text document of a publication

Pure and the VU Research Portal function as digital repository for publications of the Vrije Universiteit. As such you can use Pure to archive the full-text document of your publication and choose to publish it online in Green Open Access.


The University Library supports all VU researchers who want to make their publications accessible in the VU Research Portal. 

Read all about it on the You share, we take care! project page.
