About the Journal

The purpose of the PUR is to provide undergraduate students at the University of Pittsburgh with an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, online forum to publish their research and creative scholarship. Sponsored by the Frederick Honors College, PUR strives to build an integrative community of undergraduate scholars to showcase the work done under the mentorship of Pitt faculty researchers.  Our submissions fall under four categories: research, creative writing, visual arts, and review.


PUR has a rich history at the University of Pittsburgh. Stay tuned for an overview of PUR history throughout the last four decades!
