Registered Reports: Peer review before results are known to align scientific values and practices.

Registered Reports is a publishing format used by over 250 journals that emphasizes the importance of the research question and the quality of methodology by conducting peer review prior to data collection. High quality protocols are then provisionally accepted for publication if the authors follow through with the registered methodology.

This format is designed to reward best practices in adhering to the hypothetico-deductive model of the scientific method. It eliminates a variety of questionable research practices, including low statistical power, selective reporting of results, and publication bias, while allowing complete flexibility to report serendipitous findings.

This page includes information on Registered Reports including readings on Registered Reports, Participating Journals, Details & Workflow, Resources for Editors, Resources For Funders, FAQs, and Allied Initiatives.

Connecting Research Tools to the Open Science Framework (OSF)
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This webinar (recorded Sept. 27, 2017) introduces how to connect other services as add-ons to projects on the Open Science Framework (OSF; https://osf.io). Connecting services to your OSF projects via add-ons enables you to pull together the different parts of your research efforts without having to switch away from tools and workflows you wish to continue using. The OSF is a free, open source web application built to help researchers manage their workflows. The OSF is part collaboration tool, part version control software, and part data archive. The OSF connects to popular tools researchers already use, like Dropbox, Box, Github and Mendeley, to streamline workflows and increase efficiency.

Defining and Growing the Field of Metascience
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

In this talk, Professor Fidler argues how the field of metascience contrasts with many scientific disciplines because it works in service to science with a goal to improve the process by which science is conducted. The importance of creating a defined community is that is allows for norms to develop and for proper credit to be given for this work, without which it will be marginalized or demeaned.

Funder Mandates and Trends in Open Science
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Research funders are requiring or strongly encouraging open and reproducible methods at increased rates, leading researchers to rely on more data management tools while institutions continue to provide services to support them. Research support staff adapt quickly to guide their stakeholders and provide resources, while administrators must find methods to determine adoption and success across the community.

In this webinar, COS Director of Policy David Mellor shares an update on funder expectations like preregistration, data sharing, and open access outputs, as well as strategies to highlight these practices in funding proposals. COS Director of Product Nici Pfeiffer also discusses OSF features that enable researchers to meet and exceed these expectations, as well as provide unique activity insights for administrators, and how COS continues to work with the funder and institution communities to facilitate transparent practices across the lifecycle.
