The purpose of the Pittsburgh Undergraduate Review is to advance independent undergraduate scholarship. The PUR aims to bring research to the forefront of undergraduate awareness. By presenting provocative ideas, the PUR catalyzes further intellectual innovations and pursuits, thereby energizing the academic community.
To accomplish these goals, the PUR showcases the best available undergraduate research. This is achieved by publishing indiscriminately with regards to location and discipline; the PUR is a multidisciplinary journal that accepts papers from around the world. In turn, hardcopies of the journal are distributed nation-wide, and the published papers are available via this website.
