Cite a Project or Component

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.

On a "Project Overview" or "Component Overview" page, find the "Citation" section.

Click the down arrow on the far right of the "Citation' section to view the pre-formatted citations for a project.

The "Citation" section wil expand. By default, APA, MLA, and Chicago formats will be listed.

Type into the Enter citation style box to find hundreds of other citaton formats that you can choose.
