Sign in Through Your Institution

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. 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 can be done either by creating an OSF account under your institutional email or by adding your institutional email to your OSF account after creation.

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