n the past few years, more than 13,000 Harvard faculty, students, and
staff, individually or in groups, have created more than 6,500 websites on
Harvard’s OpenScholar platform, a free, open-source software project based
on technology invented and developed at Harvard’s Institute for
Quantitative Social Science (IQSS).

Now available to the Harvard community through a hosted service run in
collaboration with Harvard University Information Technology (HUIT) and
Harvard Public Affairs and Communications (HPAC), OpenScholar distributes a
considerable volume of information by and about Harvard scholars,
departments, centers, and projects. It provides the first coherent online
presentation of the Harvard brand, empowers individual scholars to create
excellent websites, and has saved the University more than $100 million in
external Web development fees.


*​There is talk of online researcher profiles using DSpace.*
*There are much better ways to do this, OpenScholar being one of them, VIVO
another and Mahara.*
