Introduction to the Open Science Framework

Keeping track of where project files are, who changed a document and when, or finding a place to easily store and collaborate on data can be tedious time wasters. We use things like Dropbox or GitHub to address these problems, but how do we keep everything findable and organized while still using the services we’re already familiar with?  The Open Science Framework (OSF) is a freely available platform that helps with these issues and more.  In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn:

  • How the OSF supports open and reproducible research
  • How to apply basic data management best practices using the OSF
  • How to leverage the OSF for project management and collaboration.

Since projects on the OSF are private by default, it is a useful tool not only for research but for any kind of collaborative project. We invite faculty, students and staff to attend. Learn more about the OSF at the University of Arizona.
