The Open Science Framework (OSF) is a free, open source web application from the Center for Open Science that is designed specifically for research project management. Researcher can use OSF to collaborate, document, archive, share, and register research projects including related materials and data. The system's flexible private/public settings allow research to share their work selectively and to acquire a DOI. OSF integrates with tools such as Google Drive, Box, GitHub, and Zotero making it valuable resource in relation to the NIH DMS Policy.
