Keeping data and research materials organized across all phases of the research process is always a challenging process. To help the research community address these challenges, the Center for Open Science developed the Open Science Framework (OSF), a research tool that supports collaboration, data management, and transparency throughout the research lifecycle. The OSF provides avenues for researchers to design a study; collect, analyze, and store data; manage collaborators; and publish research materials. In this webinar, attendees will learn about the many features of the OSF and develop strategies for using the tool within the context of their own research projects. The discussion will be framed around how to best utilize the OSF while also implementing data management and open science best practices.
