What is the Pure Research Management System


(Pure RMS)?

Click here to access the Pure Research Management System (Pure RMS).

It is the system that researchers or research administrators will use to apply for funding; manage awards and contracts; record research outputs, prizes and other activities; and create CVs, so that they can be showcased on the Macquarie University Research Portal.

It is one system of a suite of research management systems that forms the Research Hub.

A complete roll-out of Pure RMS across the University is due for completion in 2018.
