## Local Open Research Working Groups
### Manchester Metropolitan University Working Group
- Open Science @ MMU Psychology is the hub of Open Science in the Department of Psychology at Manchester Metropolitan University (we are still working on a catchy acronym). We have a dedicated OSF page which is updated regularly with Open Science resources, organised by the stages of a research project lifecyle (https://osf.io/2yh6t/). The organisers are [Tom Hostler](mailto:email@example.com) and [Oliver Clark](mailto:OLIVER.CLARK3@stu.mmu.ac.uk).
### University of Chester Open Research Working Group
- The Chester open research working group is known as CORA (Chester Open Research Alliance). If you would like to sign up to our email list, please complete the brief form [here](https://chester.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/cora). We run regular meetings of the R users group, ReproducibiliTea, and workshops on open research practices. Please contact [Suzanne Stewart](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like further information.
### Lancaster University Open Research Working Group
- The Lancaster open research group is known as Prospr (Promoting Open Science Practices), and has been running since January, 2017, and is also a member of the wider UK Reproducibility Network.
- We run methods training sessions, [workshops](https://osf.io/3bvgp/), host a [ReproducibiliTea](https://reproducibilitea.org/journal-clubs/#Lancaster,%20UK) journal club, an Open Research Café, as well as thinking about curriculum development, and advocating for open research within the university.
- If you'd like to join Prospr, please send an email to [John Towse](mailto:email@example.com), who manages this list. Members also get a snazzy mug to show off to colleagues.

### University of Sheffield Open Research Working Group
- [Sheffield Reproducibility Network](https://sites.google.com/sheffield.ac.uk/sheffield-reproducibility/home) is part of the UKRN, of which University of Sheffield was one of the first members. We have funded a Sheffield Reproducibilty studentship (due to start October 2020) to support meta-science research and are recruiting a Research Practice Lead who will work across the University to champion and promote open research practices, research improvement (including reproducibility) and integrity in research. We host a [ReproducibiliTea](https://reproducibilitea.org/journal-clubs/#Sheffield) as well as one off events like [RepoHacks](https://n8cir.org.uk/news/reprohacks/) (2020-03-10) or the Sheffield Reproducibility Showcase (2019-06-27).
