Pure & UM Research Publications completely renewed
We are happy to announce that Maastricht University and MUMC+ have a completely new Pure. Pure and associated services, such as the Research Publications portal, have been back in operation since Monday 17 February. Due to the cyber attack end December, Pure was not available for users and visitors for weeks. We have used the downtime to continue the planned migration to the new cloud platform without additional inconvenience for you. As a result, Maastricht University now uses the latest version of Pure with improved user experience and new functionalities.
Pure to a new platform
Our research information system Pure has moved to the cloud platform of the supplier. The move guarantees the best accessibility and performance. And also the guarantee that we always run on the most recent version.
Pure’s migration was on the agenda for January and was in full preparation when we could no longer reach our servers and data due to the cyber attack. And it stayed that way until the end of last week. In the meantime, we have continued with the design and testing of the new Pure platform. So when we were able to access the data again, the migration was started immediately. This action allowed the completely new Pure to be launched again on 17 February without extra inconvenience or downtime.
Pure users login in the same way as before and the user interfaces have changed slightly. But not in such a way that you get lost or have to take a course. The Pure User Guide on the new Pure Support page provides extensive information about all common operations in Pure. And with additional questions, you can always contact your faculty supporter or the Pure support team.
Researchers using the DataHub storage services now have the opportunity to make a dataset openly available via DataverseNL. From now on you can copy (parts of) a dataset from DataHub to DataverseNL with just one push of a button.
