A Data Curation Profile is a resource for Library and Information Science professionals, Archivists, IT professionals, Data Managers, and others who want information about the specific data generated and used in research areas and sub-disciplines that may be published, shared, and preserved for re-use. Data Curation Profiles capture requirements for a specific data set generated by a single scientist or lab, based on their reported their needs and preferences for the data. The Data Curation Profiles Directory provides a stable, citable home for completed Data Curation Profiles. Each completed profile is subjected to review before being formatted, published with a DOI, and distributed through the information supply chain.
Education and Culture takes an integrated view of philosophical, historical, and sociological issues in education. It is the official journal of the John Dewey Society, founded in 1935, which draws its inspiration from the work of the philosopher, psychologist, and educational reformer who died in 1952. Submissions of Dewey scholarship, as well as work inspired by Dewey’s many interests are welcome. John Dewey Society members receive the journal as part of their membership in the society. Education and Culture is supported by the Daniel Tanner Endowment Fund. From 2013 onward, content published prior to a three year moving wall is available free-of-charge at http://docs.lib.purdue.edu/eandc/. The version of record of the three most recent years is only accessible to Project Muse subscribers.
First Opinions, Second Reactions (FOSR) fills a void by publishing book reviews that meet the needs of K-12 teachers of Language Arts, parents and children, and public and school librarians. FOSR actively seeks the opinions of experts in children's literature who teach at the college level, work in educational institutions, and are writers themselves for "first opinions" on new books. These reviews, in turn, are enriched by "reactions" from others who are engaged in teaching and learning activities and have used the resource in a "real" setting.
Gifted Children is the electronic journal of the AERA Special Interest Group (SIG) for Research on Giftedness, Creativity, and Talent. It serves as a vehicle for distribution of research reports and resources, such as methodological information and book reviews, that will be of interest to researchers in gifted education. Articles are published free-of-charge to readers so that they are immediately accessible to practitioners as well as academics, and internationally as well as in North America.
Global Business Languages is an annual publication containing articles on issues related to foreign languages, and English as a Second Language, taught for specific purposes (business, science, hotel and restaurant, law, etc.). We encourage submissions of manuscripts pertaining to Chinese, English for non-natives, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish research, and others. All articles must be written primarily in English, with foreign language examples as needed.
The Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning (IJPBL) publishes relevant, interesting, and challenging articles of research, analysis, or promising practice related to all aspects of implementing problem-based learning (PBL) in K–12 and post-secondary classrooms.

The Journal of Human Performance in Extreme Environments is a peer-reviewed journal that accepts empirical and theoretical articles with relevance to human performance in extreme environments, defined as settings that possess extraordinary technological, social, and physical components that require significant human adaptation for successful interaction and performance. The publication reaches researchers, practitioners, and professionals from industry, the armed forces, and academic institutions from around the world who specialize in issues related to extreme environments.
The graduates of today and tomorrow enter into a world that requires them to be engineering-literate and technologically savvy. The integration of engineering education in grades P-12 will better arm students with essential tools and skills to enter into the workforce or postsecondary education. Additionally, due to a 20 percent slip in the number of engineers graduating from U.S. institutions and with more than half of the U.S. workforce in the sciences and engineering approaching retirement age, the need for a diverse group of students interested in and prepared to study engineering in college is ever growing. It is essential that young engineers from the U.S. be involved in the next generation of innovative ideas that support our society's needs. This interest and drive to participate in engineering must be fostered at an early age. JPEER is dedicated to addressing the downward trends in engineering interest, preparedness, and representation; to transforming P-12 education to include engineering; to preparing a globally competitive engineering workforce; and ultimately to creating a society of engineering-literate citizens.
The Journal of Purdue Undergraduate Research has been established to publish outstanding research papers written by Purdue undergraduates from all disciplines who have completed faculty-mentored research projects. The journal is run by students, but behind the scenes is a unique partnership between Purdue University Press and other departments of Purdue University Libraries, working with Purdue Marketing and Media and the Online Writing Lab, based in the Department of English. Publication of JPUR is sponsored by the Office of the Provost at Purdue University.
The Journal of Terrestrial Observation (JTO) is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal originally affiliated with the Purdue Terrestrial Observatory (PTO). JTO's unique mission is to examine the multi-disciplinary theories, models, technologies, and applications associated with earth observation in the broadest sense. The Journal covers a wide range of topics including satellite remote sensing, aircraft reconnaissance, and proximate sensing utilizing in situ instrumentation. Periodic special issues devoted to specific emerging technologies and unique applications accept both invited and openly-solicited articles for review. As of 2012, the journal is no longer published at Purdue and has moved to Tuskegee University. Past issues are still available on Purdue e-Pubs.

The Jewish Role in American Life is an Annual Review connected to the Institute. Since Volume 6, the editors have decided to focus each issue on a single topic and to present articles that largely consider aspects of that topic alone.
