The award celebrates the many ways of contributing to open science and to a transparent research culture. Researchers, educators, support staff and students are invited to submit their completed or ongoing open science projects or initiatives.
We invite projects that fall within one of the following categories:
- Open Access / Open Data / Open Materials / Open Software
- Transparency / Metascience / Preregistration / Reproducibility
- Stakeholder Involvement / Citizen Science / Community Engagement
- Open Educational Resources / Open Education / Open Online Courses
We are welcoming both projects that explore the challenges of open science as well as those that celebrate positive experiences and successful outcomes. We welcome projects concerning (1) the implementation of open science policies and infrastructure within institutions, (2) the development of courses, seminars, and educational materials on open science, (3) research on open scientific practices, (4) preregistrations or registered reports, (5) student projects on open science, (6) critical discussions on open science. We encourage submissions of both ongoing and completed projects.
A jury will rank the submitted projects and award the best 8 projects with a prize of 200 EUR. The submission deadline is December 15.
