    File Revisions and Version Control

    The OSF has built-in version control and records changes to files over time. When you add a new version of a file with the same name to your OSF project, the OSF automatically updates the file and maintains a record of all previous versions stored on OSF Storage.

    The OSF also provides access to previous versions of files stored on third-party storage providers. Some storage providers limit the number of previous versions saved; check with your storage provider to understand their policies and practices related to versioning.

    Upload files

    Each project and component can have its own set of files, allowing you to organize your files into meaningful groups like datasets or background research.

    Each file is also given a unique, persistent URL, meaning that it can be cited or linked to individually.

    Create a View-only Link for a Project

    You can share the contents of private projects with non-contributors by creating View-Only Links. These links can also be anonymized to remove identifying information, useful in blinded peer review.
