The University’s Discovery Research Portal (Pure server) will be upgraded on Monday 05 September 2016 between 07:00-08:00. The service will be unavailable during this hour window.
Why do we need to upgrade? To apply the latest bug fixes and enable download statistics to be exported to the Institutional Repository Usage Statistics UK (IRUS-UK). This in turn allows us to comply with current regulations on making research data available more widely.
