Frequently asked questions

Why does the University use Pure?

In an increasingly competitive funding environment it is critical that the University manages its research information effectively; not only to meet the requirements of funding councils and other external bodies, but to demonstrate to the broader community the excellence and significance of the work we do, and help us understand St Andrew’s strengths (be that at individual, departmental, school or central level). Pure plays a vital role in addressing these needs, with information from Pure populating the St Andrews Research Portal which provides a public view on the University's research activity and promotes the University’s research excellence to the wider community.
