OpenScholar Team


OpenScholar (OS) is an open source platform created, maintained, and advanced at the Harvard Institute for Quantitative Social Science. Built on Drupal, OS makes it easy for scholars and academics to build, host, and maintain their own professional, customized websites. Whether for a faculty profile site, a project, or an entire department, OS is an innovative, cost-efficient and long-term solution for academic web-publishing needs.
