Questions here include
Did you say Canadian storage?
We did. OSF file storage allows you to choose between servers in the US, Canada, Europe and Australia.
All services related to file storage are localized, so, for example, rendering a document in your browser using OSF does so without your data leaving Canada. Everything else about your project resides on US servers though. This includes your wikis, chats, descriptions, titles, tags etc.
To make Canadian based storage your default in newly created projects:
I have an existing project on US storage. Can I migrate it to Canadian servers?
Yes and no. While it is not possible to migrate a project per se, it is possible to fork a project. When you fork a project, you make a copy of it. When you make that copy, you get to select which OSF storage servers you'd like to use.
Assuming you are creating a fork for a project for which you have administrative access over all components and all add-ons, all data and all versioned documents will be migrated. The project creation date, however, will reset to the date of forking.
Can I connect my UBC OneDrive to OSF?
No. This is currently (as of 2020) not an option. We are investigating solutions.
How do I add UBC's Dataverse on Borealis to my OSF project?
This particular add-on is currently (Fall 2022) not working properly with UBC's Dataverse on Borealis. A fix is being investigated.
What is OSF Institutions?
OSF Institutions is an institutional portal into OSF; it brings together all public research affiliated with UBC in one landing page. You can access the UBC Institutions page at osf.openscience.ubc.ca
How do I connect my OSF account with UBC?
To associate your OSF account with UBC, you will need to log in using the 'Sign in through institution' option on the login page. You only need to do this once. For subsequent logins, you can opt to use your OSF account credentials or your institutional credentials.
How do I affiliate my projects with UBC?
Projects that you created before associating your account with UBC will need to be manually affiliated with UBC. To do this, open a project, head into the settings for that project, scroll to the options for 'Project Affiliation / Branding' and add the project to UBC.
Projects created after associating your account with UBC will, by default, be affiliated with UBC. You can opt out of this affiliation at the time of project creation. You can also opt out of affiliation at any point in the future through the project's settings under 'Project Affiliation / Branding'.
Only public projects will be displayed through the institutional portal. Private projects will remain visible only to project contributors.
