Open Research practices
Open research includes a broad constellation of practices which each contribute to transparent and responsible research. An individual research project may engage in a subset of relevant practices.
A selection of practices drawn from the University of Manchester’s Position Statement on Open Research are presented here. If you can’t find what you’re searching for here, an extensive glossary of open research practices and terminology has been created by the community led FORTT project.
‘Citizen science’ refers to scientific research conducted with the active participation, engagement, and collaboration of the public.
Computational reproducibility is the principle that results produced with research software, such as data analysis, can be reproduced using the same methods and input data.
Co-production is a collaborative methodology bringing together service providers and service users to solve arising issues.
Pre-registration is the practice of registering and sharing of a research plan, ahead of observing any research outcomes or collecting data.
Open research data is a fundamental element of open research.
Since 2019, The University of Manchester Library has provided funding for Open Access monographs.
