    Register Your Project

    This article will give you a general overview of Registrations, while subsequent articles will provide more depth.

    A registration on the OSF creates a frozen, time-stamped version of a project that cannot be edited or deleted. The original project can still be edited, while the registered version cannot. You might create a registration to capture a snapshot of your project at certain points in time - such as right before data collection begins, when you submit a manuscript for peer review, or upon completion of a project.

    Registrations can be made public immediately or embargoed for up to 4 years. Registrations cannot be deleted, but they can be withdrawn. Withdrawing a registration removes the content of the registration but leaves behind basic metadata, like registration title, contributors, and a reason for the withdrawal (not required).

    Configure Notifications

    You can configure your OSF project or component to send you an email when new comments are added or when files are updated. You can choose to receive an email every time one of these actions happens or in the form of a daily digest.

    These settings apply only to you. Modifying them does not affect any other contributor on the project.

    Comment on a Project

    Users can leave comments on OSF projects or individual files within OSF projects. Commenting can be configured so that only project contributors can comment or any OSF user can comment.

    Control Your Privacy Settings

    It can be useful to keep some parts of your project private while others are made public. Fine-grained privacy controls allow you to do this. This article describes how to make all or parts of your project public while keeping others private.
