How do registered reports work?
Registered reports are a form of publication where the preregistration is peer-reviewed before data is collected, and the decision to publish is made regardless of the study's outcome.
- The registered reports page at the Center for Open Science provides an excellent collection of resources, including participating journals, practical information for all parties involved, and answers to common questions. Furthermore, they provide [examplary guidelines for authors and reviewers] (https://osf.io/pukzy/).
- Chambers, Feredoes, Muthukumaraswamy and Etchells (2014) introduce registered reports, outline the underlying motivations, and respond to common objections.
- Greve, Bröder, and Erdfelder (2013) suggest a similar idea, result-blind peer review.
