Open Science Framework is a free and open source project management repository that supports researchers across their entire project lifecycle. 

As a collaboration tool, OSF helps researchers work on projects privately with a limited number of collaborators and make parts of their projects public, or make all the project publicly accessible for broader dissemination with citable, discoverable DOIs. As a workflow system, OSF enables connections to the many products researchers already use to streamline their process and increase efficiency. 

Increasing rigor often requires implementing new practices, learning new tools, or mastering unfamiliar statistical techniques. Come learn about how OSF can help you navigate this complexity!

Join us for a hands-on workshops to learn practical steps to increase the reproducibility and transparency of your work. The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Project documentation
  • Employing version control
  • Creating pre-analysis plans
  • Using the Open Science Framework
  • Potential benefits to researchers for engaging in open practices

Prerequisites: Participants should bring their own laptop.

Instructor: Ian Sullivan, Transparency and Openness Training Coordinator, Center for Open Science
