SURE is provided by the University to enable our authors to take advantage of the Green route to Open Access. By self-archiving their work in SURE authors can increase access to their research and meet funder requirements on Open Access.
SURE is indexed by a number of discovery tools including Google Scholar, Unpaywall and CORE. SURE provides authors with a stable URL with which to link to the Green Open Access version of their work. This can be used to share the work through course materials, social media or platforms such as Wikipedia.
It is good practice to keep your publications up to date in SURE. Staff submitting an Individual Research Plan will need to refer to their relevant publications in SURE. SURE displays statistics about your work, downloads and Altmetric scores are displayed at the article level.
Authors at the University of Sunderland can log into SURE using their institutional credentials in order to deposit their work. If you are a new starter at the University and need help importing your publications or would like to make an appointment to review your SURE profile please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
