The University is planning to retire and switch-off Parade within the next few months. Parade is the institutional repository set up around 10 years ago to store the research publications produced by UoP academics. We have been in the process of removing Parade for sometime and migrating content to Pure, so this should not have a major impact on anyone.

Its functionality is now provided by the Portsmouth Research Portal, which draws data from Pure. In addition to displaying our publications to the public, the Research Portal displays information about all aspects of the research life-cycle, including projects, funding, impact and media coverage.

So to avoid duplicating work and cost, it is sensible to just use the one system. All data added to Parade prior to the Research Portal being set up has been migrated into Pure, so no information will be lost as a result of this change.

If anyone has any questions about Parade, please contact
