At the Center for Open Science, our mission is to increase openness, integrity, and reproducibility of scholarly research. Promoting these practices within the research funding and publishing communities accelerates scientific progress. Join us!

What We Work On

Research Tools and Infrastructure

COS has developed a variety of software tools and workflows based on our free Open Science Framework to help researchers manage and archive their research, privately or publicly. Take a tour to learn more.


COS helps connect and build open science communities of researchers, their affiliated institutions, their funders, and the publishers of research outcomes. Check out COS Communities to learn more.


COS supports and conducts research on scientific practices. Our team members are thought leaders on open science best practices and our tools serve as platforms to demonstrate reproducible research methods. See some examples.
