Open Science Framework Retrieve a contributor

Open Science Framework - Retrieve a contributor

Retrieves the details of a given contributor. Contributors are users who can make changes to the node or, in the case of private nodes, have read access to the node. Contributors are categorized as either "bibliographic" or "non-bibliographic". From a permissions standpoint, both are the same, but bibliographic contributors are included in citations and are listed on the project overview page on the OSF, while non-bibliographic contributors are not. #### Returns Returns a JSON object with a `data` key containing the representation of the requested contributor, if the request is successful. If the request is unsuccessful, an `errors` key containing information about the failure will be returned. Refer to the [list of error codes](#Introduction_error_codes) to understand why this request may have failed.

API Description


Open Science Framework


OSF provides free and open source project management support for researchers across the entire research lifecycle. As a collaboration tool, OSF helps researchers work on projects privately with a limited number of collaborators and make parts of their projects public, or make all the project publicly accessible for broader dissemination. As a workflow system, OSF enables connections to the many services researchers already use to streamline their process and increase efficiency. As a flexible repository, it can store and archive research data, protocols, and materials.
