Open Science Framework (OSF)

Open Science Framework (OSF) is an open source project management tool used by researchers to track a project through its entire research cycle. The features of OSF include file and project management, version control, workflow, and archiving. 

The OSF infoguide shows how to access OSF using your Mason login credentials. There are also help guides available on the OSF site that walk through the different features of OSF, including how to create and manage projects, collaborate, manage users settings, etc. 

George Mason University has an OSF university page.
