Center for Open Science and the Open Science Framework: Dataverse Add-on by Sherry Lake


Published on

The Open Science Framework (OSF:; supported and maintained by the Center for Open Science - COS: is a free, open source workflow management service and repository designed for scientists to manage and connect everything across their research process. One of the first add-on connections was Dataverse, which provides value to users through an easy connection as a repository service. This talk will introduce the Dataverse add-on connection and provide a technical view of how it was built and how it connects the OSF and Dataverse.
