Research Publications Collection:  NURO Research Publications System

Guidance on reporting research outputs for UON researchers and academic staff

What is NURO?

NURO is the University of Newcastle's research publications management system.

NURO searches the Web of Science, Scopus, PubMed and Europe PubMed Central databases on a continuous basis harvesting potential publications for our researchers, based on individual search settings. All previously recorded publications information has been migrated to NURO. When the system finds potential new publications, you will receive an automated email alert, asking you to ‘claim’ or ‘reject’ the publications. You also have the ability to manually enter those publications not found in the online databases. Once a publication is claimed or added within NURO it will appear on your online profile after 48 hours.

NURO will be used to manage the annual Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) via a module within NURO. After you have claimed your 2015 publications, the system will automatically nominate them for the publications collection. Publications that have been manually added to the system will need to be nominated within the HERDC module. The Library will continue to verify and categorise publications for the HERDC.

Academic staff who publish should log into the system and do the following:

  1. Download the NURO User Guide available at right, or on the help page located within the NURO system
  2. Check and/or adjust your personal search settings to ensure the system is finding as many of your publications as possible
  3. Claim or reject any pending publications
  4. Add any 2015 publications not found by the databases, once you are satisfied that your search settings are correct, and all possible publications in the databases have been claimed
  5. Nominate your 2015 publications in the HERDC module, accessible by clicking on the 'HERDC' tab in NURO.
