The Open Science Community Rotterdam is happy to announce an online hands-on workshop entitled Introduction to the Open Science Framework1. Below the announcement:

Introduction to the Open Science Framework.

June 1st 2022, h. 14:00 CEST, Zoom, duration 90’.

Dr. Antonio Schettino, experimental psychologist with a background in cognitive and affective electrophysiology, Senior Advisor Open Science at Erasmus Research Services and founder of the Open Science Community Rotterdam.

Researchers from all disciplines and career stages who wish to learn how to use the Open Science Framework for their own work.

To promote transparency and trustworthiness of research, an increasing number of funding agencies and journals encourage or require data, materials, and analysis scripts associated with each publication. Consequently, researchers are turning to comprehensive services that facilitate collaborative workflows with colleagues and evaluators. One of the most popular is the Open Science Framework (OSF), a free online platform developed by the non-profit organization Center for Open Science. The OSF allows researchers to manage, document, and share all the products of their workflow, from the preregistration of the initial idea to the preprint of the final report.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • set up a project;
  • invite other contributors;
  • add components;
  • fill out the wiki;
  • upload files directly or by connecting an external cloud service;
  • make the project public.

If you want to follow along (which is recommended), you will need an active OSF account (see registration page). The slide deck with a description of the features explored during the workshop can be found here.

An invitation email, including the Zoom link, meeting ID, and password, has been sent via the OSCR mailing list. If you are not part of the mailing list but would like to join, please contact Eirini.

Hope to see many of you!

Take care,
