Boost your profile in Pure

RUC Communication and Press has created a guide on how to make your Pure profile informative and easy to understand for those who visit your profile on

It is not only your research colleagues who visit your profile on Journalists and future students are also interested in getting to know you as a researcher, and your profile can be important to your collaborators, if you work with public authorities, private companies, or NGOs, for example.

Your profile description should help the visitors to the website to form a quick overview of who you are as a researcher. Therefore, it is important that your profile is easy to read and addresses the target groups that are relevant to your research and teaching.

The guides provide guidelines on how you can enter various profile information such as research field, teaching, or information about business-related collaborations. The guides also contain information on, among other things how to add ORCID and SDG’s to your profile, as well as how you link to your other profiles on e.g., LinkedIn or Twitter.

Your personal profile page in Pure

Your personal profile view in Pure is accessible at  Through the site you can add and change a great deal of the information, which is showcased on your public profile at

Below is a review of some of the elements found on the site, along with a description of whether they are displayed publicly or not.

PlumX metrics

Personal metrics linked to the individual researcher's publication pattern can be seen at the top right of the page. PlumX metrics are not visible in the public portal at

PlumX shows how people interact with a publication, for example when the publication is mentioned in the news media, in blog posts or on Twitter, how much it has been downloaded, how often it has been saved as a bookmark, etc. PlumX also include citations – both from the traditional citation database and from clinical databases such as PubMed Central.

PlumX searches the Internet for references to publications and updates the metrics on an ongoing basis. You can always "help" the research databases and metrics by making an English summary of your publication – regardless of the language of the publication.   

The text below the metrics will most likely state that the metrics are only displayed for a minor part of the overall number of publications. There may be several reasons for that. One of them is that PlumX is linked to the DOI of the publications. Therefore, it is always important to state the DOI of the publication in PURE if you want to know your metrics.

The example below shows five difference metrics out of a possible six. Only metrics that are measurable according to the PlumX criteria will be displayed.

The PlumX metrics come with the backend display, and cannot be replaced with others, e.g. if you want to see your h-index from Google Scholar.


PURE focuses on sums of the various types of publications. This way it looks similar to the sums in the portal at As in the portal, the numbers are clickable and refer to lists of those types of publications. This way, the sums serve as a sorting filter.


The project timeline provides an overview of the projects you are working on, and you can click on the individual project to see what publications and activities are connected to the project. 

Research network

The research network can show different relationships with your inputs to Pure. See which ones and select / deselect below the diagram. It is possible to filter the view according to what you want to focus on. Changes in the research network backend have no effect on the display on
