What is OpenScholar?
OpenScholar makes it quick and relatively easy for academic professionals to create a website without any special software or technical skills. It is a web-based content management system that includes ready-made features useful for academic sites: publications, class pages, blogs, calendar, and photo galleries.
OpenScholar is a Drupal distribution (a specific configuration of Drupal), devised at Harvard. We revised it for use in the School of Arts & Sciences. ISUS manages it.
During 2015–2016, we are replacing OpenScholar with CampusPress. CampusPress is a local WordPress instance, modified for academic institutions. For more information, visit http://www.sas.upenn.edu/computing/campuspress.
