The Purdue University Research Repository (PURR) is a research collaboration and data management solution for Purdue researchers and their collaborators.
PURR allows you to collaborate on research and publish datasets online. Examples of research data may include spreadsheets, instrument or sensor readings, software source code, surveys, interview transcripts, or images and audiovisual files. Sharing the data that supports your research enables other scholars to reuse and cite your data as well as to reproduce your research.
Many funding agencies such as the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health require a Data Management Plan with grant proposals. While having a good data management plan does not guarantee funding, a poor data management plan may be the reason a proposal is rejected. If your community has an established repository for sharing research data, use it! But if you're wondering what data management is, or if you're looking for data management support, PURR is a good solution for many projects.
