Open Science Framework
Open Science Framework is "a free and open source project management repository that supports researchers across their entire project lifecycle." It includes tools for data-sharing, collaboration, and preprint publication for scholarly projects, integrating with multiple external tools, including Zotero and Nextcloud, as well as popular commercial services.
OSF has various tools to support collaboration, including a wiki, file sharing, and version control on its hosted projects. These can be used to enable colleagues to collaborate on sharing data and writing processes.
