About PURR

The Purdue University Research Repository (PURR) is a university core research facility provided by the Purdue University Libraries, the Office of the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships, and Information Technology at Purdue (ITaP).

With the support of the PURR team, Purdue researchers can use PURR to write and implement data management plans, to share and manage their research data in a secure environment with their collaborators from Purdue or other institutions, to publish and disseminate datasets with DOIs, to track and measure the impact of sharing their data, and to archive their data for long-term preservation and reuse. The PURR system is based on the HUBzero platform for scientific collaboration.
