Abstract: Let be a commutative ring with identity and an -module. It is shown that if is pure injective, then is isomorphic to a direct summand of the direct product of a family of finitely embedded modules. As a result, it follows that if is Noetherian, then is pure injective if and only if is isomorphic to a direct summand of the direct product of a family of Artinian modules. Moreover, it is proved that is pure injective if and only if there is a family of -algebras which are finitely presented as -modules, such that is isomorphic to a direct summand of a module of the form , where for each , is an injective -module.
