What do you like best?

You can upload all your articleswithout judges who unjustly deem your work unworthy of publication. All your articles will have a DOI number, a very important thing, because so it isn't just a deposit for yourself, but OSF give value to your works.

On OSF Independent Research is really supported! You don't have to be supported by organizations, institutions or universities to make your productions known. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Hasn't peer review version to upload and to have your work professionally evaluated. There isn't a journal with articles' official publication.

I think an official OSF journal, in which are published certain articles selected among the most relevant ones, would be an interesting integration and could give a great contribute to the Independent Research. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

To all Independent Researchers: use OSF service, you'll not be dissatisfied and there are no impossible requirements to have. Your researches will be appreciated and you'll can share your articles everywhere with DOI! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was looking for a pre-prints server where I could freely upload my work, but all the others I had met before required a favorable judgement of the revisionists.

Now, finally, I found the right place where I could freely spread the knowledge, without having high people connections. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Arrange your files, keep them in cloud, share them with teammate it’s a simply way to use this application.

I also appreciated the ease of use of your files and searches, always at hand and viewable at any time.

You can also view any external projects that are assigned to you, so that you can edit them and maybe send them back to the sender.

Really very useful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sincerely there’s nothing I noticed as “wrong” in this platform. Maybe latency of files upload, but I can’t say it depends to OSF.

Sometimes it seems complex which project you are following and you have to search for it among those in progress, then carrying out several steps before arriving at the desired project. Research, however, works well. Overall, nothing to complain about and I find it very useful for those who need such equipment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This open source platform is very useful for collaborations in scientific research. It offers everything necessary to be able to reproduce a project, verify it, modify it, fix it, update it and send it so that it can be evaluated and examined both by collaborators and by appointments and by externals if you make it public. Excellent platform for those dealing with these types of projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Good storage of my files. I can save my important documents without lose them.

Thanks to the large community that is registered, you always have the opportunity to compare yourself with others. They are all willing to help you if you encounter difficulties Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is an application that we use in the company to save extremely important data in the cloud, and when we need to modify some of the information or reports that we save there, this system has modified options, it is quite useful to reinforce the information security of The company, and even people, has a work screen very easy to work and that meets all the necessary requirements to make our office a more organized place, technical support or assistance is super attentive and effective. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One of the errors that we get in the software is that in some intances they did not load or they were stuck, or simply they were stuck, a boy of the technical service clarified to us that this error could be due to the internet connection, however it I check the connection and everything was in order, in addition to this the files are sometimes deleted, or the modifications are not saved, but failures that happen very exporadically, so it is not something alarming. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a really useful tool, to improve the security of your files since they can be backed up in the cloud and even if your physical equipment damages all the files will be saved, it is really useful in this sense, anyone who decides to use it is not going to regret anything. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before applying this system, if a computer was damaged it had to pay high costs in technical support to try to recover information, now thanks to this software the cost within each department was considerably minimized and the information saving part was greatly reinforced It has been so useful that it is unimportant not to want to work with him at all times, it gives us a lot of confidence, and it is extremely profitable.

What do you dislike?

It really is a very useful and very complete application to save all kinds of information in the cloud, it has some failures when saving certain documents and to put names or connection failures when saving the documents they are deleted which is quite annoying because it means you have to rewrite it Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

if they could improve the storage system it would greatly improve the application and also improve the connection so that the application works better in low-latency networks so that there is better backup in case any document is lost there may be the option to recover it or restore it at one point previous to be able to recover lost files and not have to rewrite them Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Since its implementation, it has facilitated the way to keep all the information of the company and thus maintain control with all the movements that make and all the decisions made in the company, without doubt one of the best applications to record information in the cloud Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
