Text for Your Proposal

The following boilerplate text is a great way to describe PURR in your Data Management Plan:

Support for data management for this project throughout its lifecycle will occur using the Purdue University Research Repository (PURR), Purdue’s institutional data repository. PURR utilizes HUBzero®, a web-mediated software platform designed for scientific collaboration and sharing of scientific data that was developed with support from the National Science Foundation and Purdue University. PURR provides workflows and tools for ingestion, identification and dissemination of data as well as services to ensure data security, fidelity, backup, and mirroring. Purdue Libraries will consult with investigators to facilitate selection and ingestion of data with the application of appropriate descriptive metadata and data standards as well as to provide appraisal of data for long-term preservation and stewardship. PURR is working towards the ISO 16363 process to become a certified Trusted Digital Repository. PURR comes with a set of default policies and functionality that addresses privacy and confidentiality, intellectual property and copyright, and access and sharing of data. Datasets published using PURR will be assigned Digital Objects Identifiers (DOIs) and will be exposed to the web using open standards to maximize discoverability and scholarly reuse of data. An allocation of resources from PURR has been reserved for this project and will be appropriated upon its award.
