    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 Registrations cannot be deleted, but they can be withdrawn.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).

    Share a Preprint

    This article will walk you through 5 easy steps to share a preprint. Sharing your preprint will allow you to receive quick feedback on your research and gain a wider audience for your work. Because your preprint will be on the OSF, you’ll get access to other features like analytics on how many others are accessing and downloading your work, a persistent identifier to allow your preprint to be cited, and the ability to add supplemental files, like data or analysis scripts.

    Edit Contributor Permissions

    You can control what actions your collaborators can take on your project by assigning different permissions levels. You can also assign different permissions to contributors in different components of a project. This article explains how to use this fine-grained control to make the most of the OSF.
