On this page you can find out about how to register your dataset in Pure and guidance on filling in the fields of the dataset template in Pure.

Registering your dataset(s) in Pure

I have already published my data - do I need to register my dataset in Pure? 

If you have registered or published your dataset in the University of Bath Research Data Archive you do not need to register your dataset in Pure as this will be done automatically. 

If you have published your dataset in an external archive or repository email the Research Data Service with the Digital Object Identifer (DOI) for the dataset and the DOI for the related paper. If your dataset doesn't have a DOI please send us as much information as you can do about the dataset and the DOI for the related paper.  We will set up a record in the University of Bath Research Data Archive, based on the one in the external archive. This will then automatically update your Pure record. 

 

I have not already published my data

If your dataset has not yet been archived, log into the University of Bath Research Data Archive and start a new item. See our guide to depositing your data in the University of Bath Research Data Archive for more details.
