The Journal of Purdue Undergraduate Research has been established to publish outstanding research papers written by Purdue undergraduates from all disciplines who have completed faculty-mentored research projects. The journal is run by students, but behind the scenes is a unique partnership between Purdue University Press and other departments of Purdue University Libraries, working with Purdue Marketing and Media and the Writing Lab, based in the Department of English. Publication of JPUR is sponsored by the Office of the Provost at Purdue University.
We are now accepting submissions for Volume 6 to be published in August 2016. The final deadline for the 2016 volume is February 15, 2016. To submit your proposal, please use the "Submit Proposal" link on the left-hand navigation bar.
JPUR is an Open Access journal. This means that it uses a funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for access. Readers may freely read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of articles. If you have concerns about the submission or publication terms for the Journal of Purdue Undergraduate Research, please contact the Journal Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
