Statements for institutional use
The UK Reproducibility Network supports responsible research evaluation, transparency in research, and appropriate incentives to promote open research. We have developed statements that can be developed and used by institutions and organisations. These common statements are intended to encourage uptake and promote a degree of interoperability across these institutions and organisations. We welcome suggestions for how these statements could be modified.
Transparency in Research
Commit to transparency and rigour in research across all disciplines.
Responsible Research Evaluation
Rewards and Incentives
Open Research as an Imperative for Institutions
Boosting Research, Revenue, and Reputation
How to use the common statements
Insert your institution name as indicated, and share the common statements throughout your institution. We suggest having these statements visible on your institution website.
For example, here is the Responsible Research Evaluation policy statement, as adopted and promoted by the University of Bristol.

The REF 2028 initial decisions, and the UKRN Open Research Programme
This document provides text that can be adapted by UKRN institutions that are partners in, or that may join, the UKRN Open Research Programme. The text is intended to help inform internal discussions within those institutions. It provides agreed descriptions of how institutional engagement in that Programme is directly relevant to some of the initial decisions by the UK funding bodies relating to REF 2028.
