Open Research Prize 2021 winning entries

The University of Bristol, through collaboration between the UK Reproducibility Network and the University of Bristol Library Service, recently launched their new Open Research Prize, promoting and celebrating the use of open research practices across the University.

The Prize was open to submissions from all researchers (including postgraduate research students) in all disciplines across the University, in two prize categories:

  1. Widening Reach Prize – Demonstrates open research practices with wider reach potential, including re-use, improving public value and/or innovation.
  2. Improving Quality Prize – Demonstrates open research practices that increase the quality of study design and/or research findings.

An online event was held on 31st March, to showcase presentations from selected applicants, following which a prize voucher of £100 was awarded to the winner in each of the categories. The prize recipients were determined by a vote on the day, weighted against the decision of a small panel of judges.

Congratulations to all of the winners and runners-up of the first University of Bristol Open Research Prize, and thank you to all who took part.
