#PRCN2020: Fingerprinting, use cases and effectiveness at UWA

Presented by

Monique Fountain and Irina Akopian, University of Western Australia

About this talk

The University of Western Australia originally acquired Pure in 2014 as a Repository and source of truth for publication information. Since then, it has steadily expanded to include a greater breadth of information on researchers and has replaced the University’s contact directory for staff profile information. The Research Office and Faculties in the University of Western Australia are increasingly relying on Pure to identify researchers by expertise and research area. Fingerprints have been a popular way to identify researchers in specific fields and for finding collaborators and mentors, as well as more recently, for matching researchers with funding opportunities. Our team has been working closely with Elsevier to improve fingerprint aggregation in our researchers’ profiles. We will outline the advantages and limitations of using fingerprints.
