Other Opportunities to Showcase Your Work

Communicating research through presentations and publications is an important part of the research process. Several options are available to students for showcasing and publishing their work. A primary option is the annual campus-wide Undergraduate Research and Poster Symposium, held in April. Several undergraduate research programs and academic units also have symposiums/poster sessions throughout the year. For example, the Discovery Park Undergraduate Research Internship Program (DURI) conducts a forum and poster session near the end of the academic year. For those students who are willing to invest more effort, the Journal of Purdue Undergraduate Research (JPUR) holds the option of experiencing the scholarly publishing process and its benefits. The Purdue Journal of Service-Learning (PJSL), a multi-disciplinary Open Access journal available in print and online, dedicated to students who conduct projects with strong service-learning and academic civic engagement aspects.
