Fiona Pye and Dr. Allison Hsiang receive the PeerJ Award for Open Data Analysis and Publication in Palaeontology

The Open Access journal PeerJ has granted the Award for Open Data Analysis and Publication in Palaeontology to our Masters student in Palaeobiology, Fiona Pye, for her talk “ImageJ and 3D Slicer: Open Source 2/3D Morphometric Software” co-authored by Nussaïbah Raja Shoob, Bryan Shirley, Ádám T. Kocsis, Niklas Hohmann, Duncan Murdock & Emilia Jarochowska.

The Award has been ex aequo granted to Dr. Allison Hsiang from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich for her talk “A probabilistic model of correlated discrete morphological character evolution for phylogenetic inference” co-authored by Fredrik Ronquist.

The Award was part of the Open data analysis and publication: from morphology to evolutionary patterns session convened by Kenneth De Baets and Emilia Jarochowska at the annual meeting of the Paläontologische Gesellschaft in Munich.
