We are pleased to announce the return of Thank you for all your great submissions for the York Open Research Awards. !
Our judging panel will read through these shortly and contact all entrants by early June.
We will aim to announce the awardees publicly mid-late June and highlight their projects and initiatives here in due course.
These awards provide an inclusive opportunity to highlight projects and initiatives across all disciplines which engage with, reflect upon or advocate for open research practices and principles. We are celebrating case studies from across our research community, in particular work which encourages dialogue and broader thinking about open research and its implementation. This year’s awards have been organised in collaboration between the University Open Research Advocates, Operations and Strategy Groups, with support from Research England Enhancing Research Culture funding.
Last year’s diverse range of awardees included the open access Aspectus postgraduate community journal (History of Art), the open source JBU dataset visualisation tool (Electronic Engineering and Biology), and a preregistered study on English comprehension and production by Arabic and Chinese learners (Education). All thirteen of last year’s winners are listed here, and the Open Research Skills Framework provides further examples of how such practices and principles can be applied at various stages in the research lifecycle.
The awards are open to all staff and students and the deadline for submissions is 12 noon on Monday 15 May 2023. Click the button below to submit a short case study for consideration via the Google Form.
