The Researcher Services group, an initiative of the University of Cincinnati Libraries along with the [email protected] Research & Development Team, is pleased to announce a new tool for managing research projects: OSF for UC.

OSF, or the Open Science Framework, is an open-source workflow management tool developed by the Center for Open Science. Appropriate for any discipline, OSF enables researchers to manage workflows, share files, view project analytics, and more. Available at osf.uc.edu, OSF for UC is the portal for students, faculty, staff and others to manage project files and documents. There is no cost to use OSF and sign-in is easy. Simply go to osf.uc.edu, click on the Sign in button, choose University of Cincinnati, then enter your UC 6+2 Central Login. 

To learn more, the Center for Open Science is hosting a webinar on the OSF platform on Thursday, June 1, from 10am-11am. At this webinar, you can learn more about managing workflows, collaborating, version control, archiving data, and connecting with other tools such as Box, Github, and more. Register for the webinar online.
