By using preregistration, researchers can demonstrate that their studies have been conducted, analyzed, and reported as initially planned.

By mid-2018, we will be offering an open access journal exclusively dedicated to registered reports.

Registered Reports in Psychology (RRP) is a peer-reviewed, open access preregistration journal. High-quality protocols will be accepted and published free of charge, thus supporting the authors in verifying that an envisioned study was carried out, analyzed, and reported as initially planned.

An accepted RRP protocol, along with the author's consent to use our repository services PsychArchives to publish results, grants the author access to our Psychology Lab (PsychLab) where data can be collected  free of charge. The laboratory includes an online study panel as well as an offline psychology lab.

Contributing a protocol to RRP does not require authors to publish in a specific journal.

RRP is currently under development. To receive notification on when RRP will begin accepting submissions, please register here.
