How to use the Open Science Framework?

When: 11th of February 2019

Teacher: Dr. Antonio Schettino (FPPW, Dept. of experimental clinial and health spychology)

Description:  The Open Science Framework (OSF) is a free, open-soure web-app that manages research projects at all stages of the research lifecycle and connects the tools researchers use.  Which means that when you're looking for an online platform specifically developed for reseachers to collaborate with their international colleagues on all levels of the project, the OSF might be something you will like to use.  From quick file senders, awards for preregistration, the integration of Dropbox, Github, figshare to DOIs and repositories, OSF covers every aspect of the research lifecycle. And in this session Dr. Schettino will show you how to use OSF. More info:
