To promote transparency and trustworthiness of research, an increasing number of funding agencies and journals encourage or require data, materials, and analysis scripts associated with each publication. Consequently, researchers are turning to comprehensive services that facilitate collaborative workflows with colleagues and evaluators. One of the most popular is the Open Science Framework (OSF), a free online platform developed by the non-profit organization Center for Open Science. The OSF allows researchers to manage, document, and share all the products of their workflow, from the preregistration of the initial idea to the preprint of the final report.
This hands-on workshop is aimed at researchers from all disciplines who wish to learn how to use the OSF for their own work. We will go through some of the functionalities offered by this service, including:
- set up a project
- invite other contributors
- add components
- fill out the wiki
- upload files directly or by connecting other cloud services (recommended by EUR)
- make the project public
For this workshop you will need:
- laptop/desktop computer
- internet connection
- an active OSF account (see registration page)
The course Responsible research data management (RDM) offers a wonderful overview of legal and privacy issues associated with data sharing, good data management practices, and practical advice on how to create a data management plan. It is not necessary to understand the basic functionalities of the OSF, but it can help attendees decide what and how to responsibly store data and materials on this platform, to increase transparency and reusability and simultaneously take into account legal and privacy considerations.
Dr. Antonio Schettino has a background in experimental psychology and cognitive and affective electrophysiology. He has experience in transparent and open science practices at every stage of the research cycle: preregistration of the initial idea; public sharing of data, materials, and analysis protocols; preprints; and publication in peer-reviewed open access journals.
As Coordinator Open Science at Erasmus Research Services, he coordinates the Open Science Community Rotterdam, organizes events and workshops, and personally supports researchers, research groups, and departments in strategically implementing open science practices.
