Swiss Reproducibility Award

Swiss Reproducibility Award

Eva Furrer

The Swiss Reproducibility Network (SwissRN) is a peer-led consortium that aims to promote and ensure rigorous research practices in Switzerland. SwissRN’s special focus is on reproducibility/replicability. With the goal of supporting and highlighting the work of young scholars who are paying special attention to such issues in their work, SwissRN invites nominations for three annual Swiss Reproducibility Awards.


  • One award is granted in each scientific category: Humanities and Social Sciences; Mathematics, Natural and Engineering Sciences; and Biology and Medicine.
  • Published, submitted manuscripts or preprints, or other relevant research output (e.g. open-source software packages, openly shared data including appropriate metadata) by researchers who were PhD or Master students at a Swiss Higher education institution during the conduct of the submitted work are eligible.
  • Publication has to be within the last two years, other research output within the last year before the SwissRN Annual Meeting.
  • The submission must adhere to the highest standards of reproducibility. It can be a fully reproducible empirical study, a systematic review, a methodological paper with supplementary software or any other contribution that submitters deem relevant.

Nomination process A letter of nomination (300 words) may be submitted for an eligible research output. Self-nomination is encouraged.

Review process The SwissRN Steering Committee and the SwissRN advisory board will select the winners from the nominated manuscripts while soliciting additional expertise from external reviewers as needed.

Award The three recipients will receive a cash award of CHF 500 along with an official certificate at the SwissRN Annual Meeting on Ocotber 28, 2022. The awardees are expected to give a brief presentation about their work.

Submit nomination To submit your nomination, visit the 2022 Swiss Reproducibility Award Nominations Form and submit before June 30th. SwissRN encourages applications from all sections of the community irrespective of gender, race, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sexual orientation, disability or age.
