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.
