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 10 to be published in August 2020. The final deadline for the 2020 volume is February 15, 2020. To submit your proposal, please use the "Submit Proposal" link on the left-hand navigation bar.
