Mission

The University of Pennsylvania is committed to sharing Penn's research and scholarship as widely as possible. 

As the Faculty Senate of the University of Pennsylvania has said:

"The Faculty of the University of Pennsylvania endorses the principle of open access because they recognize the advantages of free access to new knowledge for the authors and the community. It is expected that, in most cases, faculty will choose open access as the best mechanism to rapidly and globally disseminate their work."

- Open-Access Statement of Principles for Scholarly Articles, September 13, 2011.

These pages, maintained by the Penn Libraries, help to facilitate these principles.
