The Open Science Framework (OSF) is a free, open source web application that connects and supports the research workflow, enabling scientists to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their research. Researchers use the OSF to collaborate, document, archive, share, and register research projects, materials, and data. The OSF is the flagship product of the non-profit Center for Open Science.
Researchers can use the OSF to manage their projects and collaborations or register their studies.
Journals can use the OSF to support data and materials sharing initiatives, or the OSF registry to support preregistration of research.
Funders can use the OSF to support data and materials sharing initiatives or mandates, to broaden the impact of the work they fund.
The Center for Open Science (COS) is a non-profit technology startup founded in 2013 with a mission to increase openness, integrity, and reproducibility of scientific research. COS pursues this mission by building communities around open science practices, supporting metascience research, and developing and maintaining free, open source software tools.
