We take great pride in announcing that the EQUATOR Network has won the Council for Science Editors’ 2017 Award for Meritorious Achievement.

Quote from Iveta Simera "This award is a fantastic recognition, not only for the whole EQUATOR team but also for all those who support us in our efforts."

On 23 May 2017, NDORMS's Iveta Simera accepted the Council for Science Editors' (CSE) 2017 Award for Meritorious Achievement on behalf of the EQUATOR Network. CSE's highest award is given to a person or institution dedicated to the improvement of scientific communication through the pursuit of high standards in all activities connected with editing.

This award was made to "honour the contributions of the EQUATOR Network's efforts to promote the ethical conduct, reporting, and publication of scientific work". Established in 2006 and based here at the Centre of Statistics in Medicine in NDORMS, the EQUATOR Network is an international initiative to support health researchers in how they write and publish about their work.

The EQUATOR Network joins past winners such as the Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID), the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and the National Library of Medicine.

"Over the last 10 years the EQUATOR team has worked hard to support researchers, journal editors and peer reviewers in writing and publishing well-reported research papers. This award is a fantastic recognition, not only for the whole EQUATOR team but also for all those who support us in our efforts," said Dr Simera.

"The way we disseminate research findings is changing dramatically. However, complete, accurate and transparent reporting remains one of the key pillars that make research useful and reproducible."

The CSE is an international membership organisation for editorial professionals publishing in the sciences. They serve over 800 members in the scientific, scientific publishing, and information science communities by fostering networking, education, discussion, and exchange. Through their focus on 'the four Es' of Education, Ethics, and Evidence for Editors, they aim to be an authoritative resource on current and emerging issues in the communication of scientific information.
