We are pleased to announce the recipients of the York Open Research Awards 2024! Our panel selected the following projects for recognition, having carefully considered the ways in which they engage with, reflect upon and advocate for open research practices and principles. We enjoyed reading all of this year’s submissions, and were especially pleased to receive so many projects this year from postgraduate and undergraduate students. We will work with the awardees to develop their submissions into Open Research in Practice case studies to help share good practice and hopefully inspire others. Congratulations to all of our awardees!
