Open Science Framework (OSF) is a free and open-source project management tool that helps researchers manage, store, and share research material (documents, code, data, pre-registration, preprints, etc) throughout the entire research lifecycle.
OSF HOME: Create a free personal repository of public or private ‘projects’. Each project contains a wiki, file storage, ‘components’ (file structure), and tracks changes. Users also have the option to assign the project tags, copyright license, create a DOI, and integrate a number of ‘Add-Ons’ including GitHub, figshare, DropBox, Google Drive, Amazon S3, etc. The integration of Add-Ons allows the user to have an OSF repository without the need to duplicate research materials already available in other tools (such as data in a GitHub repository).
OSF REGISTRIES: An open repository of pre-registrations for experimental science. Pre-registrations do not need to be discipline or subject-specific and can follow a number of templates including AsPredicted.org, Registered Report Protocols, Replication Recipe (Brandt et al., 2013), Post-Completion, etc.
OSF PREPRINTS: An open preprint repository. Preprints do not need to be from a specific subject or discipline. However, a number of preprint repositories use OSF’s open-source infrastructure, including PsyArXiv, MetaArXiv, and MindRxiv
Institutional support for Open Science Framework (OSF) is provided by Princeton University Library and Princeton Research Data Service.
