OSF (Open Science Framework) is a free platform for hosting and collaborating on datasets, documentation, and research results. In this workshop, we will tour OSF, discuss the principles of open science in our fields, and work through a sample project together.
Participants will learn:
- How to discover and download data through OSF
- How to manage collaborators and permissions for a research project
- Best practices for organizing OSF projects, including using version control
- How to use OSF to make your research more FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reuseable)
Note: OSF also has a sub-site, OSF Registries, for pre-registering studies and systematic reviews. This class will not discuss preregistration in detail, but the underlying website architecture is the same.
