Pure upgrade: June 2019

Pure will be upgraded on Wednesday 19th June 2019. There will be no access to Pure and the Pure profile pages between 16:00 on Tuesday 18th June and approximately 17:00 on Wednesday 19th June.

The new version of Pure introduces a new user interface which users will see when they access Pure. Users are able to toggle between the new and old interface. At some point in the future, information will be provided about when the old interface will cease to be available. Users are invited to try the new interface and give feedback.

A guide to the new interface is available here.

Questions / feedback can be sent to

There is also new functionality for REF 2021 following the release of the REF guidance on submissions in January 2019. Updated REF guides for authors and UoA leads can be viewed at the REF 2021 page.
