Purdue University Research Repository (PURR)


Welcome to PURR, the Purdue University
Research Repository, an online data management and publishing tool for
Purdue researchers. PURR supports researchers throughout the whole data
management lifecycle from planning to publishing and beyond. When PURR was
launched in 2011, we were one of the first institutional repositories
specifically for data. Since then, PURR has worked with over 3,000 researchers on
more than 1,000 projects, 2,500 data management plans, and 350 grant awards.
PURR helps researchers plan for data management, collaborate with team members,
publish completed datasets, archive data securely, and track publication impact. In
this video, we’ll talk briefly about each of these. Let’s start with planning. PURR’s data management resources will
help you meet funder requirements and establish best practices for organizing
your data. PURR offers a variety of helpful resources including tutorials, tools,
sample data management plans, and boilerplate text for your grant proposal. Explore our planning resources online, or
contact us to schedule a consultation. Our team is part of the libraries
research data unit in room 174 of the Stewart Center. PURR helps you manage multiple research projects simultaneously. Each project comes with at least 100 gigabytes of
file storage and one terabyte of space for grant funded projects. With our
projects tool, share files privately and securely with your research team,
including collaborators from outside of Purdue. PURR is completely web-based so you and your team can work from anywhere in the world while your file storage is
safely and securely managed by our team right here on campus. When you are ready to share your data
with the world, PURR makes publication easy. Simply select the files you want to
publish, and answer some simple questions about your data. PURR offers a variety of
publication features, so you can set embargoes, publish versions, include
supplements, customize tables, and create series. Your data will be publicly
available on the PURR website and indexed by services like Google Scholar, opening
your work up to new audiences. Every PURR dataset has a DOI, a digital
object identifier, registered with DataCite. That’s a globally unique ID that
makes it easy for others to find and cite your work. A DOI ensures that the
scholarly community will always be able to identify your dataset even if it
changes location or format over time. PURR archives your data securely to help
you meet funder requirements and for your own future use. Where is your data
stored now, and how long will that storage last? Behind the scenes, the PURR team carefully archives each published dataset with a series of geographically
distributed backups, ensuring your data is safe and secure in PURR for at least
10 years. After 10 years, your data will become part of the Purdue University
Libraries collection. PURR keeps your data safe and presents it to the world. PURR even helps track how many people are viewing and downloading
your data. PURR will send you a monthly email with statistics that you can also
check anytime on the PURR website. Now that you have an idea of what PURR can do for your research, explore the website or contact us to get started.
