We have published a primer on Open Research Awards. The primer gives an overview of what an Open Research Award (or Open Research Prize) is, why you might wish to run one and how to get started. It also gives advice on shortlisting the winners and running the award event itself.
The primer is available for download at https://osf.io/kqgez (DOI: 10.31219/osf.io/kqgez), or head to our primers page for details and links to all of our available primers.
Thank you to Kirsty Merrett, Mitul Mehta, Emily Farran and Robert Darby for authoring the primer.
