Open Science Framework

UW is an Affiliate of the Open Science Framework (OSF), which means that UW staff, students, and researchers can now create OSF accounts using their NetID through the “Login through your institution” pointer on the Sign Up page.

OSF is an open source cloud-based project management platform. It is designed to help teams collaborate in one centralized location. Teams can connect third-party services that they already use (such as GitHub, Google Drive, and Amazon Web Services) directly to the OSF workspace. OSF provides version control, persistent URLs, and DOI registration. Cross-institutional collaboration is easy, as is controlling who has access to projects. Visit OSF.io to get started.
