OSF Collections

A solution for funders, journals, societies, communities, organizations, and other groups in need of building and searching collections of related OSF projects.

How others are using OSF Collections


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

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.

What you get with OSF Collections


Branded landing page

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.


Aggregated results from across OSF

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.


Submission control

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.


Affiliated submissions

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.

*See how OSF Collections supports the discoverability and contribution to bodies of research like the emerging field of metascience.
