When reporting quantitative results, psychologist routinely engage in copy-paste reporting: Statistical results are copied from the output of an analysis software and pasted into a word processor. Copy-paste reporting is tedious. If the analytic approach changes during manuscript preparation or revision, copy-pasting starts anew. More importantly, copy-paste reporting is error-prone. A substantial number of published journal articles report inconsistent statistics (Brown & Heathers, 2016; Nuijten et al., 2016; Petrocelli, Clarkson, Whitmire, & Moon, 2013). Moreover, even with the original data in hand, reported results are often difficult and sometimes impossible to reproduce (Eubank, 2016; Hardwicke et al., 2018; Stodden, Seiler, & Ma, 2018). Dynamic documents are a time-saving, fault-preventing alternative to copy-paste reporting. By fusing manuscript and analysis scripts, dynamic documents automate reporting of results, ensure that the reported statistics are consistent, and facilitate documentation and reproduction of analyses. In this hands-on workshop I provide a primer on preparing dynamic, submission-ready, APA-style manuscripts with the R package papaja. Participants will learn how to automate reporting of statistics including tables and plots. Basic prior knowledge of R is required.
