Reproducibility Recognition 

Reproducibility is central to HDR UK’s values.  In an effort to recognise and reward practices which support reproducibility and reuse, applicants were asked to highlight any practices employed by their team that supporting reproducibility and reuse – such as (but not limited to) pre-registration, use of reporting guidelines, FAIR data, open-source software, registered reports, etc. 

Hidden Role

Tell us about novel solutions to knotty issues, the level of support provided, etc.
