Welcome to Projects
Video Description: Follow our fictitious researcher, "Sophia" as she learns how her common problems throughout the research life-cycle can be solved by the tools on the OSF! This video will start with our section on OSF projects
What are projects?
Projects are a flexible tool for researchers to plan, collaborate, and organize a research study. Because of their flexibility, projects are an excellent place for a team to show their work and refine ideas. Our Project help guides are split into several sections.
- Create A Project: Need a space to collaborate with your peers on your work? In this section, you will find information on creating a project, component, and even examples of OSF projects.
- Managing Projects: Once you have created a few projects, visit this section for more information on navigating all your projects, organizing your work, or even deleting a project.
- Collaborating, Contributors: Projects are a great tool for your research team to work together. Learn more ways to collaborate, set permissions, and access projects already in progress.
- Wiki: A 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. Learn more in this section.
- Sharing, Linking, And Forking: Time to get the work out about your project! Explore this help guide section if you are looking to share, link, or even make a copy (ie. “fork”) of a project (yours or someone else's).
- Project Files: The file section of your project is an excellent place to hold all of your data, analysis, notes, and research documents.
- Project Storage: For questions on storing your files inside of an OSF project, or about storage limits, see our OSF Project storage section.
