The Open Science Framework (OSF) is a free and open source project management tool that connects researchers to the tools they are already using to make research management easier. It was made and maintained by the Center for Open Science, a non-profit dedicated to increasing the openness, integrity, and reproducibility of research.
Some important aspects of the OSF is that it allows you to:
The Center for Open Science and NYU’s Data Services are excited to announce the launch of OSF for Institutions at NYU. Researchers who rely on the Open Science Framework (OSF) to manage their project workflows, build research transparency, encourage project visibility, and collaborate with other scholars can now affiliate their projects with NYU’s institutional membership, thus joining the growing OSF community at the university while continuing to enjoy all the benefits and functionality of the framework.
Check out all of the public OSF projects from the NYU community here: https://osf.nyu.edu.
OSF accounts are free to everyone -- however, you can affiliate your work with NYU and connect your NYU accounts if you use the institutional login! If you already have an OSF account and would like to link it to NYU, before using the institutional login, make sure your NETID@nyu.edu e-mail address is a primary e-mail on your account. If you do not, a second account will be made for you. The two can be merged, but you will have to make a request to the Open Science Framework to do so.
If you do not have an OSF account, then use the Sign Up button on the OSF home page (osf.io) to get to this page:
Choose 'Sign in through institution' and then select New York University and log in with Shibboleth!
OSF allows you to create a project from scratch or from a template. The links below will take you to OSF articles for each topic.
You can also work with the OSF from the comfort of R or Python using special libraries created by and for researchers:
For all the OSF webinars, check the Center for Open Science YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGPlVf8FsQ23BehDLFrQa-g
Affiliation takes only a few seconds, and does not require any modification to your researcher profile or projects. By linking your account to NYU’s OSF for Institutions, you:
Get the benefit of single sign-on using your NYU NET ID. One less password to remember!
Benefit from easier connections to NYU resources, storage apps, and research support made available through our institutional account.
Will be eligible to benefit from future technology enhancements to NYU’s OSF for Institutions.
Increase the visibility of open scholarship at NYU while adding to the discoverability of your research among local scholars.
