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.
