  • Analyzing the Legacy of Henrietta Lacks Recorded: Nov 13 2019 63 mins
    Chris Belter, Informationist at the NIH Library, and Holly J. Falk-Krzesinski, PhD, ICSR Advisory Board Member & VP, Elsevier
    In 1951, a young black woman named Henrietta Lacks was diagnosed with cervical cancer. During her treatment, her doctor took a sample of her cells and tried to grow them in culture. The cells, called HeLa cells, were the first human cells that could be grown in a laboratory and are still the most widely studied cells in biomedical research, having led to treatments for diseases such as polio, HIV, and cancer.

    Join the webinar on Wednesday, November 13, 11:00-12:00 PM EST, where Chris Belter, Informationist at the NIH Library, National Institutes of Health, will discuss how he used advanced analytics and Research Intelligence solutions to analyze the research fields and impact that has resulted from the use of HeLa cells, an approach that can be used to investigate the impact of other research areas as well.

  • #PRCN2019: It’s not you, it’s me: Moving from local to cloud-hosted Pure Recorded: Oct 17 2019 28 mins
    Rich Gough, Leigh Stork Aston University, Birmingham, United Kingdom
    Aston University has hosted Pure locally since we adopted it as our CRIS in 2012. In the spring of 2019 we determined that moving Pure to an Elsevier hosted and maintained solution would deliver the stability and resources needed to support critical government research assessment activities (Research Excellence Framework 2021) as well as the day-to-day use of Pure by our academics. The main drivers for the move were performance issues, limited institutional technical knowledge and capacity to support and update Pure, and also a desire to switch to the new Pure Portal and stay on top of critical system updates.
    This presentation will share how Aston determined which hosting solution was appropriate for its needs, and the activities necessary to migrate a locally hosted Pure and new portal, including:
    •Setting up, testing and verifying synchronisations, user authentication, online import sources, and mail settings.
    •Working with our repository host to establish and test the Pure-Eprints connector.
    •Testing and verifying the result of the transfer of the local Pure database to a hosted environment.
    •Configuring the new Pure Portal in line with the university branding.
    We will finish our talk with a discussion of the lessons learned from the project, including the challenges encountered and benefits realised, and feedback from our community of users.
  • #PRCN2019: A Tale of Two Platforms: Making Pure Work with the Digital Commons Recorded: Oct 17 2019 24 mins
    Karen Ramdsen, Montclair State University, USA & Simone Polgar, Elsevier
    In 2016, Montclair State University adopted Digital Commons as its IR and showcasing solution. This was an initiative led by the library to showcase faculty publications, books, student theses and dissertations, and institution-led journals.

    In 2018, as part of the ResearchwithNJ initiative, Montclair State University adopted Pure. This was an initiative led by the Vice Provost for Research to highlight the University’s research expertise to foster new and stronger industry collaborations.

    In late 2018, driven by a desire to maximize the utility and coordination between both platforms, Montclair State University initiated its participation in the Pure-Digital Commons beta integration program. The program supported a select set of joint customers in leveraging the strengths of both platforms to further advance the institution’s goals: a robust system of institutional records in Pure were transferred to populate Digital Commons and maximize the visibility of the institution’s output.

    This presentation will highlight the steps and considerations the combined library and research office teams went through together with Elsevier to define the integration and flow of records, and highlight the results and anticipated impacts.
  • #PRCN2019:A DIY altmetrics dashboard written in R using data from Pure Recorded: Oct 17 2019 15 mins
    Tuija Sonkkila, Aalto University, Espoo, Finland
    Since the Altmetrics Manifesto in 2010, we have seen a number of commercial solutions enter the market that aggregate various metrics and render them either on a native dashboard or embedded in portals and other web sites. The UK-based Altmetric was a pioneer in offering a free API. Lately, Crossref has started to deliver detailed open data on e.g. Twitter and Wikipedia via their Event Data API.

    Aalto University does not officially make use of altmetrics in decision making. Yet, there is a fair amount of curiosity among academia in whether their publications have gathered interest online, how much, when, and from whom. To fulfill these wishes and to experiment with open APIs we have produced a series of snapshots as interactive web apps built with the R Shiny package.

    In this presentation I will show some examples and go through the technical process, starting from the initial step of exporting DOIs from Pure.
  • #PRCN2019:Using Pure to report on physicians' scientific activities Recorded: Oct 17 2019 22 mins
    Stefanie Van Rysseghem, Amal Alsamman, Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Brussels, Belgium
    The University Hospital of Brussels (UZB) is required to report on its scientific activities for 1) payroll tax exemptions, 2) additional hospital funding and 3) the annual report of the hospital.

    In Belgium there is a partial exemption for payroll taxes when a company can prove that its employees dedicate at least 50% of their time to research. This measure was put in place to strengthen the competitiveness of research companies in Belgium. In order to prove this all academic hospitals in Belgium agreed upon a list of research activities a physician can use in order to demonstrate his/her research efforts. Each research activity was assigned a specific amount of credits an in order to qualify for tax exemptions a researcher need to accumulate a yearly total of 12 credits.

    Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and the university hospital are one legal entity. However, physicians didn’t have access to Pure. Seeing as the VUB and the UZB are one legal entity, and because the VUB had already had implemented a CRIS the decision was made to manage all the research output of the UZB in the CRIS of the VUB.

    In this presentation the way of reporting for payroll tax exemptions will be the main focus.
  • #PRCN2019: How a Multidisciplinary Team of Stakeholders supports Pure at Monash Recorded: Oct 17 2019 22 mins
    Sian Wright,Tania Wilmann,Monash University, Clayton, Australia
    Monash University is considered an “extra large” institution (QS Definitions >30,000 student FTE) and has over 6,000 academic staff users of Pure.

    Our comprehensive engagement with many of the Pure modules available also means that there are multiple stakeholders for the product across the University, including but not limited to;

    Technical support staff (e-Solutions)
    Staff involved in Applications and Awards (Monash Research Office)
    Finance staff
    Library staff
    Staff managing Research Outputs (ROCS)
    Staff managing Data Integrity (Data Governance)
    Staff involved in ERA (Excellence in Research Australia) submission
    One of our strengths has been the establishment of a team comprising representation from all these different stakeholders. This team has worked, using the Agile methodology, as a collaborative unit to deliver:

    Training and support to users
    Technical support for configurations, break-fixes, upgrades etc.
    Investigations into new features of Pure and how these can be used at Monash
    In this approach, stakeholders from different areas of the University become informed of, and respect, the critical use periods of Pure in other areas of the institution. As a team, we are able to make informed decisions about Pure upgrades: negotiating timeframes around external funder deadlines, discussing if particular bug fixes are urgently required for one group of users and identifying if there are any “show-shoppers” in any areas of the product which will prevent upgrade.

    Additionally, the different stakeholders are able to negotiate which features, fixes and investigations for which areas of the product should be prioritised to deliver the best outcomes for users.

  • #PRCN2019: Pure Training – help us to support you better Recorded: Oct 17 2019 13 mins
    Hong Chen Elsevier
    Each year there are new users joining the Pure community; either from a university who just introduced Pure, or from an institute that had been using the system for some time. There is a common challenge, how to get the new users up to speed while facing a system that is so complex. During this session, we provide an overview of our training resources, processes and methods; we would also like make it more interactive by inviting you to share what worked best and what need to improve. Your valuable inputs will be used by our product and support team to design and build a better training program.
  • #PRCN2019: Automatically track datasets in Pure, wherever they were published Recorded: Oct 17 2019 21 mins
    Alberto Zigoni, Lorenzo Feri, Davina Erasmus, Elsevier
    Funders and Government agencies increasingly ask grantees to share datasets from funded projects. Current Research Information Systems (CRIS) play a crucial role – enabling compliance and showcasing datasets as first-class institutional research output.

    Institutional data repositories are one place where researchers can publish their data, but what happens if a researcher decides to publish their dataset somewhere else? It’s going to be challenging for an institution to discover all datasets and track them in a CRIS.

    Our Pure and Mendeley Data teams have joined forces to find a way to solve this issue. Following an initial presentation at the Pure 2018 conference, we’re now excited to present a fully automated and configurable solution that enables institutions to import dataset metadata into Pure from major data repositories from around the world, thanks to our content enrichment capabilities and the power of the Mendeley Data Search API.
  • #PRCN2019: Improving Datasets in Pure Recorded: Oct 17 2019 19 mins
    Dimitri Unger, Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, Netherlands. Reingis Hauck, Leibniz University, Hannover, Germany
    The status of datasets within research has become more prominent, which is apparent by the increased adaptation of the FAIR principles. It has become clear that data may be one of the most valuable products resulting from research.

    The need to collect and profile metadata on datasets is growing. This is because it will lead to even better research through sharing and reusing data. Pure can help to facilitate these ambitions, but if improved it can serve them even better.

    In different user groups Pure managers have looked at the ways Pure can help researchers when it comes to datasets. Our findings could be categorized under the following fields: Interconnectivity, Usability, Administration and Profiling. Through this poster we would like to present the findings on how to improve datasets in Pure.
  • #PRCN2019: Fractional Authorship & Publication Productivity Recorded: Oct 17 2019 16 mins
    Kate Gasson, Rachel Herbert, Alex Ponsford, International Center for the Study of Research, Elsevier,
    The pressure for researchers to publish research outputs, driven by incentives for career success in a crowded field is well documented. In this study, we look at how researchers are responding to that pressure in terms of the way that they collaborate on publications by asking the question – are individual researchers writing more articles each year, or are more authors just writing more collaboratively?

    Using Scopus data for over 22 million documents we show trends in authorship from 2008 to 2017. We see that the length of author lists is increasing, with papers having an average of 4.9 authors in 2017 compared to 3.9 authors 10 years earlier. For individual authors, we observe that they are appearing on a very similar number of papers per year. However, the total number of publications divided by the total number of authors is decreasing. This indicates that authors are collaborating more and increasing their personal productivity (in terms of published outputs), but that the net output per active researcher has declined. Similar trends are observed across all subject areas. Our findings imply that there is a productivity ‘cost’ to collaboration. In this talk, we’ll discuss our findings, and the implications that they have for measuring author contributions, researcher productivity and research leadership.
  • #PRCN2019: Data visualizations with Power BI: Use cases from Vrije Universiteit Recorded: Oct 17 2019 16 mins
    Amal Alsamman, Stefanie Van Rysseghem, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium
    Frequently, our office (Research Information & Data Management) receives questions from management concerning our research data. In order to formulate a reply we write a query, ask ICT to run it on the database and to send a report back to us. Then, we check the results and - if needed - perform some cleaning and re-run the query. Finally, we hand over an Excel overview containing the data needed to answer management’s original questions.

    Recurring questions like “What collaborations do we have with the U.K.?” or “What about the data quality of our project” could be answered more efficiently and systematically.

    In order to facilitate the growing number of business query’s regarding research data our office started to use Power BI locally to make the building of reports easier, re-usable and more visual.

    Simultaneously, our institution is confronted with the same problem for other databases as well. A project to incorporate Power BI for the whole institution was launched and our office was asked to be part of the first pilot project given that we were already using our research data in a more advanced manner.

    During this presentation, we will talk about a few VUB-specific data use cases and how they were visualized using Power BI. We will also explain how the implementation project for our institution will be realized over the coming months and our (data)vision for the future.
  • #PRCN2019:RIM Use Cases: Promoting reuse of Pure data, one department at a time Recorded: Oct 17 2019 19 mins
    Jan Fransen, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA
    Now in our fifth year with Pure, the University of Minnesota is finally reaching a tipping point: At first seen only as an expert finder system, people are beginning to understand that Experts@Minnesota is also a data treasure trove. The transformation hasn't been easy, though.

    In this presentation you'll learn about how we're using brief case studies to show a broad range of university stakeholders how we can use Pure data to highlight impacts, streamline workflows, and eliminate maintenance and data entry, one department at a time,
