Simple Registered Report Protocol Preregistration

Registered Reports benefit science by improving rigor and reducing publication bias.

When to use this form:

Use this form after you have received “in principle acceptance” (IPA) by a journal following Stage 1 Peer Review, and before you have begun the study.

You can learn more about Registered Reports here and search the OSF Registry of submitted studies here. If you do not have IPA from a journal, you can still preregister your research. Learn more here.
