Research@WUR: a new public portal for WUR research output and expertise

Published on
April 4, 2019

Wageningen University & Research has a new public portal to showcase its research output and expertise: Research@WUR. Research@WUR shows publications, research expertise and collaborations at the individual and organisational levels. Many publications are online, full text, and freely accessible to everyone.

Research expertise

Research@WUR includes WUR research output that is registered in Pure. Publications in English are used to automatically generate key subjects for each individual researcher or group to show their research expertise. Research@WUR uses a relatively new technique called Fingerprinting: by searching on keywords or parts of texts you can find individual researchers by their expertise.

A personal page for researchers

Research@WUR gives an overview of a researcher's expertise, publications, collaboration networks and activities that are registered in the WUR Research Information System Pure.


The collaborations between researchers or research units within and outside WUR are shown on a map and visualised as a network. The collaboration map is based on co-authorships in peer-reviewed articles from the last five years.

Research output

Not only journal articles, books, book chapters, and reports are available, but also datasets, projects, press and media clippings, prizes and activities. All these data are visible in Research@WUR but only if the data are registered in Pure.

Staff Publications

Research@WUR will replace the 'search and browse' part of Staff Publications. Once this happens, the link to publications on the WUR website pages and the We@WUR pages will be redirected to Research@WUR. Links to publication overviews on the WUR webpages of research groups will be replaced in the coming months.

Research credits

Research credits, e.g. Tenure Track reports are accessible at the individual My Library page.

Help page

Research@WUR is created by the Library, in close collaboration with user feedback groups, Library committees and Corporate Communication. The next version of Research@WUR will contain necessary improvements.
