OSF Collections

OSF Collections is an interface used by funders, journals, societies, communities, and other groups to aggregate and improve the discoverability of related research.

OSF Institutions

OSF Institutions is a platform built on OSF that fosters collaboration among institutional users while raising the visibility of their work through institutional affiliation. 

OSF Preprints

Preprint servers are powered by OSF Preprints, a service designed to accelerate scholarly communication by allowing users to upload papers, share supplemental data, and discover papers before, during, and after peer review.

OSF Registries

OSF Registries is a scholarly repository platform where communities can build aggregations of rigorous registrations to increase the accessibility, discoverability, and reuse of high-quality research.

At times, COS makes grants to individuals and organizations in support of open science initiatives. For COS grants of $50,000 or less, no overhead costs are permitted. For COS grants larger than $50,000, overhead costs may not exceed 15% of direct project costs.
