Introductory Demonstration: Research Management Using the Open Science Framework


Monday, February 11, 2019, 1:00pm to 2:00pm


Cabot Library, Discovery Bar

This is a special class for Love Data Week

Working with frustrating, unmanaged data? Need to get your data organized and documented? This overview of using the Open Science Framework for managing, annotating, and publishing research data is for you! Managing your data is not only essential for responsible research, it will help your data be findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable.

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 and students use the OSF to collaborate, document, share, and register research projects, materials, and data.

In this demo you will see:

  • Project management features of the Open Science Framework
  • Options for online publishing of projects and data using the Open Science Framework
  • How the Open Science Framework can link and aggregate other file management applications across multiple environments

Location: Cabot Library, Discovery Bar

Instructor: Julie Goldman, Research Data Services, Harvard Library
