To better identify researcher expertise and potential collaborators, the University of Miami has launched the Pure Experts Portal, making it easier for UM researchers’ unique strengths to be discovered.

The Pure Experts Portal is a visually appealing, easy-to-use online solution for research networking that aggregates author information such as H index, co-authors, cited papers, journals, grants, and affiliation from numerous internal and external sources onto a single platform.

Profiles on the Pure Experts Portal are public-facing and searchable, making your research team globally discoverable.  The rich functionality of the Pure Experts Portal reduces time spent searching for researchers and accelerates the identification of expert collaborators from across disciplines, thus facilitating more effective and productive partnerships.

Researchers, students, research administrators and executives, deans and department heads can all benefit from using Pure. With Pure Experts Portal, you can easily create summaries of activity around departments, research groups or individual researchers.
