Introduction to the Open Science Framework: A platform for managing, collaborating, organizing, and sharing your research projects. @ BLC 4040
Aug 15 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Collaboration among researchers can be difficult in many ways. So too is the management of all the materials and documentation that go along with it. In this session we introduce a helpful platform designed to ease the difficulties of managing and sharing data and research products. The Open Science Framework (OSF) is a free, open source, online research project management platform where you can create a personal JHU affiliated account, manage multiple projects, and collaborate or share with other researchers when you are ready to do so. It has the capability of connecting to services you may already use for research including JHBox storage, or other 3rd party services such as Google Drive, Github, and Mendeley, to name a few. Over the hour we will tell you more about the OSF, how you can get started, explain basic concepts of the interface, and share some interesting examples of ways other researchers are using the OSF. You can find more information about OSF services on our website and you may also want to take a look at our Lab Organization Template and Electronic Lab Notebook Template to get an idea of how one might use the OSF. We hope that you can join us! <Register here><Handout>
