University-level Research Facilities (Cores)
The Office of the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships
maintains a listing of the university-level research facilities (cores) in operation at Purdue. To be considered university-level the research resources in
the facility should be broadly available to investigators and research teams
across the University and perhaps beyond. The resources may include
instrumentation, equipment and facilities (including databases), software,
and professional expertise in the design and conduct of specialized measurements, analysis and interpretation of data, and research collaboration. The
facility should have a business plan or model for funding its activities (any
one or combination of academic unit/center backing, recharge rates, project-by-project funding).
The list currently includes over 90 facilities and is intended to be an entry
point into the process of forming collaborations and fully utilizing the research
resources already in place. The list can be found at http://www.purdue.edu/
research/centers-institutes-cores/ cores.php. Faculty and staff are encouraged to contact the facilities directly to secure more detailed information about
capabilities and funding methods and to discuss potential collaborations.
Further, the EVPRP is actively seeking updates and additions to the list and
representatives of research facilities should provide any corrections, additions,
deletions, and suggestions to Ned Howell at email@example.com.
Purdue Publications, Research Datasets
Help Fulfil Open Access Requirements
As many funding agencies announce their plans to fulfill the requirements
of the 2013 White House Office of Science and Technology Policy memo to
ensure open accessibility to funded research findings and research datasets,
Purdue provides two university core research facilities to help faculty fulfill
Through the Purdue e-Pubs repository http://docs.lib.purdue.edu, libraries
faculty and staff can help check permissions and copyright, track down copies
of papers, and upload them to the repository on behalf of faculty members.
Along with Google Analytics, Purdue e-Pubs issues automatic monthly download notifications to authors and administrators, demonstrating the reach of
their scholarship to academics, taxpayers, policymakers and media outlets.
Faculty and students can learn more about Open Access by visiting the Purdue
Libraries Open Access portal http://lib.purdue.edu/openaccess.
Most federal funding agencies require data management plans be included
with grant proposals. A current list of funders and their requirements for
data management and data-sharing can be found on the Purdue University
Research Repository (PURR) website, https://purr.purdue.edu/aboutus/
funder-requirements. Developed by the Libraries, ITaP and the Office of
the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships, PURR provides
Purdue researchers with a platform to collaborate on their research as well
as to manage, publish, share and archive datasets. Any Purdue graduate
student, faculty or staff can create a project and receive a default allocation
of storage to begin using PURR to manage their research data.
