Question

Could someone else have already added my research output to Pure?

Yes. A co-author may have already created a Pure record for your research output. Starting a new record in Pure may therefore create a unnecessary duplicate record. Pure will alert you to this by displaying a 'View possible duplicates' message.

If a record of your paper is already present in Pure but you have not been included as an author, you should use the ‘Mine – claim content’ feature and the Open Access team will do the rest. 

If you need to, you can also edit the existing record's metadata or upload a  document to it and it will be flagged for re-validation by our team.

For detailed instruction on preventing duplicate records in Pure, please follow the steps in this blog. Need more help?
