Add Supplemental Files to a Preprint

When you share a preprint with OSF Preprints or a community preprint server, an OSF project will automatically be created so that you can add supplemental files, such as code or other materials to your preprint. Each file is given a unique, persistent URL, meaning that it can be cited or linked to individually. See the general OSF Guides for help in using the other features within the OSF project, such as using the wiki and understanding project logs.

Learn how to manage your supplemental files through your OSF project.
