The OSF and Volume III of the ER Papers

Using a Science Tool for Historical Editing

February 21, 2017

This year, we've been working with Megan Potterbusch, a fellow with the Association of Research Libraries working with Gelman Library, to improve our workflow for volume three of the Eleanor Roosevelt Papers print edition. We're now using Open Science Framework ( to track all of our work on the volume, and couldn't be happier with this solution. For us, the OSF improves upon our previous workflow system while taking less work from us (we no longer mainitain an internal wiki). Megan Potterbusch has written a blog post about applying the OSF to a humanities project-- read it here.
