Looking for a place for your researchers to collaborate on projects and publications? Open Science Framework’s free online tool provides open source project management support for researchers across the entire research lifecycle. Created by the Center for Open Science in Charlottesville, VA, OSF is a collaboration tool, workflow system, and flexible repository all in one. Designed to work with many of the research tools researchers already use, it allows users to “automate version control, get persistent identifiers for projects and materials, preregister their research, and connect favorite third party services directly to the OSF.”
