The Open Science Framework (OSF) is a tool for simplifying the management of research projects and related activities, regardless of discipline. It is a service provided by the Centre for Open Science, a not-for-profit organisation based in Virginia in the USA.
Despite its name, OSF is not discipline specific and integrates with many existing scholarly tools such as Zotero, DataCite and GitHUb rather than duplicating services. The Medical Sciences Division is funding these activities to develop case studies exploring how researchers can be supported in the areas of open science and open publishing, in a sustainable way and that encourages high quality and collaborative research practices. OSF facilities will be available to all members of the University, via Oxford SSO provided that they have an ORCID linked to their account.
