Generate Citations

Every project, component, file, and user has a unique, persistent URL on the OSF. This means that anything you upload and make public on the OSF can be cited, giving you credit for your work. Pre-formatted citations are displayed on every "Project Overview" and "Component Overview" page.

Find the "Citation" section on your project or component "Overview" page.

Click on the section to expand it.

The "Citation" section will expand. APA, MLA, and Chicago formats are listed by default.

Type into the Get more citations box to find hundreds of other citation formats from which you can choose.

You can now cite any project or component by simply copying the citation into a paper or presentation.
