Submit to ScholarlyCommons

Make your works discoverable through ScholarlyCommons, Penn's openly accessible institutional repository. Take advantage of Faculty Assisted Submission by sending us your CV or list of publications (faculty only), submit materials yourself, or set up a consultation to discuss your digital project. 

Please note that Faculty Assisted Submissions are currently on hold due to pandemic staffing issues.
