Claim an Unregistered Account

If you do not have an OSF account but are added to an OSF project, you will receive an email from the OSF notifying you that you have been added as a contributor to a project. If you wish to claim your account on the OSF, you can do so by following this help guide.

For instructions on how to add an unregistered contributor to a project, please see our Add and Manage Contributors help guide.

  3. Enter your email address into the first field
  4. Enter and verify your password into the next two fields
  5. Confirm that you are not a robot
  6. Then, click Save
    • Your OSF account will be created
    • You will be taken directly to the project to which you were originally added as an unregistered contributor
