Enabling interoperability throughout the research lifecycle often aligns with or is a key component of the missions of open source tool providers. Even before the introduction of the FAIR framework, open source tools and infrastructure have emphasized opportunities to connect the systems and
workflows that researchers rely on so that research communication can be faster, more efficient, and more secure. OSF, like many of our friends in the open science infrastructure space, is strengthened both as a technical tool and as a ‘community of communities’ by integrations with other platforms and services. In this poster we will describe our product philosophy that emphasizes interoperability and meeting researchers where they are, while also discussing our experiences with partnership building across outstanding organizations and providers in research. We will also visualize current and upcoming integrations that strengthen both OSF and partner tools while also making it much easier for researchers to manage and collaborate across the research data, planning, and outcomes.
