This guide will help you to become more familiar with Penn's institutional repository, ScholarlyCommons, and the various services provided by the ScholarlyCommons team.

Data Management

The ScholarlyCommons team is part of the Digital Scholarship group, a unit within the Penn Libraries’ Teaching, Research, and Learning division that is dedicated to expanding the capacity of researchers to create and share new kinds of scholarship. While ScholarlyCommons is not a data repository, we do accept data. Furthermore, we can connect you with someone on the Digital Scholarship group who can consult on establishing a robust, forward-looking data management plan for your project.
