Quick Start guide
Create a project to store your data and collaborate.
- A “component” can be a sub project, child project or used to house logical components of your project (data, analysis, code etc). A component's privacy settings, contributors, tags, wikis, add-ons, and files are separate from the parent project, but can inherit the contributors and tags of a parent project. Get further guidance about Creating Components.
- An advanced option is to create a project from a template, to have the project, it's components and their titles copied to a new project. The structure, and not the content, will be duplicated.
Registrations are a formal, transparent “story” of your study. This story describes what your research plans to do, any updates that needed to be made, and the results. Use the registration help page to explore more about using Registrations.
Ready to publish? Submit your manuscript on OSF Preprints. Submitted preprints are indexed on Google Scholar and can help you maximise the reach and impact of your findings, while also connecting them with your OSF projects and registrations. For more information, see the Preprint Help Section.
