We will provide a branded landing page for your service where users can discover and submit preprints. All of the information below is summarized in the Offer of Services Letter (http://bit.ly/2hpSTBU), which should be reviewed and signed before proceeding.
You should proactively secure domains for your service, even if you don't plan to host organization information there, to prevent brand confusion if someone else does. Secure the following urls for your preprint service at a minimum: .com & .org
To make selection of branding components easier, we have released a Chrome extension that can be used to test out various color options and logos. When done, the json details can be copied into the form below. To test, download the Chrome extension (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/osf-preprints-preview/lccnifnocjflboniegnmmkfiahhklbog) and navigate to an existing branded OSF Preprints service, such as https://osf.io/preprints/socarxiv and proceed.
To understand the color choices required, please refer to this guide: http://help.osf.io/m/preprints/l/771400-color-guide-to-creating-a-branded-preprint-service
