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 Registrations cannot be deleted, but they can be withdrawn.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

    Reference Management Add-Ons

    The OSF connects to reference management tools Mendeley and Zotero. Connecting Mendeley or Zotero folders to OSF projects allows you and others to view, copy, and download citations that are relevant to your project, right from the Project Overview page.

    Storage Add-Ons

    The OSF acts as a central hub to streamline your workflow by connecting to several third-party storage services.  This article describes each storage add-on and how the connections work. For a description of how to enable these connections, see the Enable Add-ons article.

    Connect Add-Ons

    An add-on is a connection between the OSF and another third-party service such as Google Drive or GitHub. You and others can view and interact with materials stored on other services from within your OSF project or component.  

    This article describes how to connect your OSF account with other services. You can connect accounts from your user settings page or from your Project or Component Settings page. This article describes configuring add-ons from your Project or Component Settings page.
