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 Registrations cannot be deleted, but they can be withdrawn.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

    Create a View-Only Link

    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.

    Create and Manage Folders

    Folders can be used to organize files in your projects or components. You can create folders in OSF Storage or many third-party storage add-ons to group files together. Folders have the same privacy settings and contributor permissions as the project or component in which they live. Furthermore, the contents of a folder can be downloaded as a .zip file.
