SAS adopted OpenScholar as a website platform in 2012. Now, in 2016, we are replacing OpenScholar with CampusPress, an academic adaptation of WordPress. We are not creating new websites in OpenScholar, and we'll be closing it down, probably this summer.
OpenScholar is a platform that makes it possible for you to create your own website using just your web browser and your ingenuity. You can post your bio, your publications, a blog, photos, class materials, and a calendar, to name just some of its built-in features. Because OpenScholar is built on Drupal, a content management system, you can do all of this without extra tools like Dreamweaver or FTP.
Although OpenScholar is relatively easy to use once you get the hang of it, we've put together some materials on this website to help make the system easier to navigate if you're just starting out.
if you are brand-new to OpenScholar, we suggest that you start with the booklet "OpenScholar tips" and spend a little time reading through and/or watching videos there. Otherwise, we have highlighted in the sidebars some of the features that we think people will find most useful and you can click through directly to those posts.
