    Use the Wiki

    The wiki is a versatile tool for interacting with your team and others who view your work. Wikis can be used to explain the main points of your project and can contain information like lab notes, contact information, or more in-depth details about your project.

    The wiki supports collaborative editing, meaning your entire team can work on it at the same time. You can also make wikis publicly editable to allow visitors to your project to contribute. All versions of a wiki page are saved, so you can always go back to previous versions and compare current wikis with previous iterations.

    Generate Citations

    Every project, component, file, and user has a unique, persistent URL on the OSF. This means that anything you upload and make public on the OSF can be cited, giving you credit for your work. Pre-formatted citations are displayed on every Project and Component Overview page.
