OpenScholar is a website building and content management tool available to faculty and graduate students for hosting professional profile sites. OpenScholar sites can contain biographies, CVs, course lists, publications, blog entries, and event listings. An owner of a site does not need to know code or web development tools to edit and use the site. A user only needs to a web browser to edit the site.

OpenScholar was developed at Harvard University as a platform for personal academic sites and academic project sites. It was built on the open-source content management tool, Drupal. Even though it's built on Drupal, not all Drupal features are present inside OpenScholar. 

There is no charge to create an OpenScholar site at Princeton University. There are no space quotas, but the platform is not intended to store large file types.

To request a site, please send email (that includes your full name and Princeton email address) to If you would like more information about this service, please email or visit our OpenScholar FAQ.
