Introduction to the Open Science Framework: A platform for managing, collaborating, organizing, and sharing your research projects.

About This Session

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!

Open Baltimore: The Impact of Local Data @ MSEL Electronic Resources Center, Homewood Campus
Mar 1 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

February 26 – March 2 is Endangered Data Week, an effort to shed light on public datasets that are in danger of being deleted, repressed, mishandled, or lost. Come learn about one of the key sources of public data for Baltimore City. Employees of the Mayor’s Office of Information Technology will introduce us to Open Baltimore – its content, origins, and plans for future development. <Register here>

Workshop on Reproducible Research Practices and the Open Science Framework @ Bloomberg School of Public Health, W3008
Apr 13 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm

Please join us for a workshop, hosted by the Johns Hopkins Biostatistics Center and JHU Data Services, to learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work.

The workshop will be hands-on. Please bring your laptop. Using an example study, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish.

Topics covered include:

  • Project documentation
  • Version control
  • Pre-analysis plans
  • Open source tools: in this specific instance, the Open Science Framework to easily implement these concepts in one easily accessible space.

Registration Link Forthcoming.

Open Science and Reproducible Research Tools  @ Brody Learning Commons 4040, Homewood Campus
Jun 6 @ 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

What is the open science movement and what does it mean for me as a researcher? In this workshop we will look at the growing importance of open science and explore the issues surrounding making research and data open. As we discuss definitions, strategies, barriers, and incentives to open research we will also begin to take a look at tools that assist users in working in a transparent and reproducible manner. Specifically we will demo the Open Science Framework (OSF), 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. A prime example of a service that promotes reproducibility, we will share more about ways that you can use the OSF to position yourself as a proponent in the open science movement. <Register>
