Affiliating research on the OSF allows researchers to manage, collaborate, and share projects within their institutional community. In order to affiliate research with an institution on the OSF, your university-issued email must be affiliated with your OSF account. This information is found under your account settings.

Once you have logged in to the OSF with your university credientials, affiliating existing projects is simple. Information on how to do this may be found here.

If your institution has worked with the Center for Open Science to create a dedicated institutional OSF landing page, you can use your university sign-in credentials to connect to the OSF.

From the OSF landing page, click the Sign In or Sign Up buttons in the top right corner.
