Publishing and Curation Services (PCS)

PCS is a digital scholarship department working collaboratively to advance and achieve the research, teaching, and learning goals of the Penn State community. Key service areas are data curation, publishing, and digital projects.

To promote scholarly communication issues, we advise and instruct on copyright, author rights, open access, and data management planning across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. PCS is the service home of ScholarSphere, in partnership with Information Technology Services. We offer services for launching and hosting open access publications, including scholarly journals and student publications, in our role to help capture and disseminate the research record of Penn State. A hybrid department, PCS also works collaboratively on digital collection platform management and digital preservation strategy.

We collaborate on digital humanities (DH) projects (see the Learning as Play and People‚Äôs Contest sites for examples), in particular with the College of Liberal Arts
