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. 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 Research Publications Collection. After you have claimed your 2017 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 A1, B1, C1 and E1 publications only.

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

  1. Download the NURO User Guide 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. Add ORCID and other Author IDs and NURO will autoclaim publications found in online sources
  3. Claim or reject any pending publications
  4. Add any 2017 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 2017 publications in the HERDC module, accessible by clicking on the 'HERDC' tab in NURO.
  6. Regularly login to NURO and check for requests for additional information > HERDC tab > My Nominations
