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 2019/2020 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 Annual Collection module. The Library will continue to verify and categorise A1, B1, C1, E1 and J1 publications only.
Academic staff who publish should log into the system and do the following:
