We recently had the pleasure of publishing a manuscript in the open access journal Ideas in Ecology in Evolution that explains the methods behind the madness of the Research Derby. It can be accessed here: http://library.queensu.ca/ojs/index.php/IEE/article/view/4931
Welcome to www.researchderby.org. 

The Research Derby is a collaborative research event, in which teams of researchers compete against each other in small teams to produce the best research project possible in only 24 hours of work.

This site will serve two main purposes: First, to explain the concept of the Research Derby event, and to help people host their own Research Derbies.

Second, we will use this site to track completed Derbies, as well as the publications which resulted from these events.  Completed derbies are located here.
