Funders can collect the outcomes from their funded research – papers, data, materials, and code – to promote the discoverability and reusability of their funded initiatives.
Journal editors invite authors to upload the data, code and supplemental materials that underlay their articles in a public, persistent repository with easy submission and aggregation by issue or volume.
Societies, advocacy groups, disciplines, or other consortiums support researchers with initiatives for open data research and provide their researchers with an interface for uploading participating data and materials.
Raise the profile of your research through a branded landing page. Each OSF collection allow visitors to identify the contributors and research affiliated with your collection.
Collections can be amassed from a variety of registered outcomes and research formats across OSF platforms. Users can also add their existing projects to your collection.
COS has developed a variety of software tools, workflows and data storage solutions called OSF to help researchers manage, archive, discover and share research more openly.
OSF projects submitted to a collection are given an affiliate indicator so visitors can trace contributors and projects to your collection to discover even more related research.
