This workshop will provide information for scholars, researchers, and early career faculty on how to share your work using ScholarlyCommons, Penn's open access institutional repository. Topics covered include publishing basics (eg., what is a postprint?), institutional repositories and open access, services provided to the Penn community by the ScholarlyCommons team, and more. Participants will leave this workshop with a clear understanding of what ScholarlyCommons is, how they can utilize it, and the ways in which they can ensure they're reaching the widest possible audience for their research.
