NURO Publications Management System

The NURO publications system is used for the capture and assessment of all research publications. NURO harvests many publications automatically, increasing the speed at which research publication profiles are updated. Researchers can manually enter any of their publications not found in the databases. Library staff will continue to manage the verification of publications data for the annual publications collection. All researchers who publish should log in to NURO and check that their 2014 publications have been entered into the system.
