Reproducibility and UKRN

Research data management and sharing research data is one part of the Open Research movement that embodies ideas of best research practice by opening access to results, data, protocols and other aspects of the research process. Promoting activities such as data sharing and public pre-registration of studies also contributes to addressing issues of reproducibility and replicability.

The University of Liverpool UKRN network leads are Andrew Jones and Professor Bill Greenhalf.

UoL UKRN meetings are being planned for 20/21

The Liverpool Research Data team work closely with our UKRN leads. At a recent workshop on data management and reproducibility Prof Greenhalf presented the following video, addressing reproducibility and Covid-19 research.

The UKRN is a peer-led consortium, created to ensure that the UK maintains its position and is seen as a centre for world-leading research. Through engagement with institutions and other stakeholders, including funding bodies, learned societies, publishers, and government, the UKRN aims to look at the factors that contribute to robust research, promote training activities, disseminate best practice, and bring about better coordination across the sector.
