Digital Scholarship

We expand the capacity of researchers at Penn to create and share new kinds of scholarship.

Data Management and Planning

Organizing, storing, and keeping track of research materials and data is a growing area of concentration in the Digital Scholarship group.

Developing Methods, Projects, and Digital Humanities

From consultation to collaboration, we will work with you to make decisions about new methods and approaches.

Whether you want to make your previously published materials more discoverable or start your own publication, the Digital Scholarship Team is here to support you in your endeavors.
