Q. What platform does ScholarlyCommons use?
The University of Pennsylvania hosts ScholarlyCommons on Digital Commons, a bepress platform. In August 2017, bepress was acquired by Elsevier, a major publishing/information analytics company. Given this development, Penn Libraries has announced that it will explore alternatives to Digital Commons. To learn more about this process, visit our FAQs.
