About OSF

As a collaboration tool, OSF helps research teams work on projects privately or make the entire project publicly accessible for broad dissemination. As a workflow system, OSF enables connections to the many products researchers already use, streamlining their process and increasing efficiency.

The platform connects pre-existing research tools, so you can effectively share the story of your research project and eliminate data silos and information gaps. It is a product of the Center for Open Science.
