Q. How did we know what we could post to ScholarlyCommons?
Whether or not you can share your works and/or post them online depends on what decisions you made when you published (Did you keep your copyright or sign it away to the publisher? Did you publish open access or subscription only?). Unless you published open access, there are likely publisher restrictions to what you can share online and where, as detailed in your publishing contracts. Because we cannot access all of your publishing contracts, we look at general policies each publisher may put up online related to resharing your work as the author.
This process involved importing all Wharton faculty publication information into a series of spreadsheets, determining the publisher for each of these works, and then figuring out whether or not those publishers generally allow us to legally deposit your work into a non-profit institutional repository like ScholarlyCommons (unless you published open access, in which case we could make it available right away). Based on that research, we then uploaded what we could to ScholarlyCommons.
