About the Center for Open Science

An open exchange of ideas accelerates scientific progress towards solving humanity's most persistent problems. The challenges of disease, poverty, education, social justice, and the environment are too urgent to waste time on studies lacking rigor, outcomes that are never shared, and findings that are not reproducible. We support research globally by providing tools and training, and by coordinating culture change in norms, incentives, and policies across the research community to make research go further, faster, and better.

Research Software Tools

We maintain the Open Science Framework (OSF) to help researchers conduct research more rigorously, and manage and share their work more openly.

Community Action and Culture Change

From individuals to institutions, we educate, train, and support research communities and their affiliates toward greater adoption of open and reproducible practices.

Metascience and Research

We conduct research on research practices to understand areas of inefficiency, and to evaluate interventions to improve.

Conduct your own open science

Share Data, Materials, or Code

Making your work openly visible to other researchers invites collaboration, allows others to discover and build on your work, and facilitates replication.

Share a Paper or Preprint

Sharing a paper or preprint on OSF accelerates scholarly communication, feedback that can improve the work, and discoverability of research. It only takes a few minutes.

Register Your Research

Create a time-stamped registration of any OSF project, or begin a preregistration prior to your study to increase the transparency and quality of your research.
