Open Research Award: Celebrating openness … and randomness?

Research output: Other contributionProfessional


Recently, the Open Science Community Groningen (OSCG) and the University of Groningen Library (UB) collaboratively set up a yearly returning Open Research Award, with the first awards being awarded October 2020. The goal of the Open Research Award is to (1) raise awareness and promote Open Research [1] practices, for example, pre-registration or Open Access publishing; (2) and incentivize incorporating Open Research in research by acknowledging and rewarding it. In this blog, we will play devil’s advocate so that we can cover pros and cons of introducing an Open Research Award and its uptake of a modified lottery.
