Experienced Registered Reports editors and reviewers come together to discuss the format and best practices for handling submissions. The panelists also share insights into what editors are looking for from reviewers as well as practical guidelines for writing a Registered Report. ABOUT THE PANELISTS: Chris Chambers | Chris is a professor of cognitive neuroscience at Cardiff University, Chair of the Registered Reports Committee supported by the Center for Open Science, and one of the founders of Registered Reports. He has helped establish the Registered Reports format for over a dozen journals. Anastasia Kiyonaga | Anastasia is a cognitive neuroscientist who uses converging behavioral, brain stimulation, and neuroimaging methods to probe memory and attention processes. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher with Mark D'Esposito in the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute at the University of California, Berkeley. Before coming to Berkeley, she received her Ph.D. with Tobias Egner in the Duke Center for Cognitive Neuroscience. She will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cognitive Science at UC San Diego starting January, 2020. Jason Scimeca | Jason is a cognitive neuroscientist at UC Berkeley. His research investigates the neural systems that support high-level cognitive processes such as executive function, working memory, and the flexible control of behavior. He completed his Ph.D. at Brown University with David Badre and is currently a postdoctoral researcher in Mark D'Esposito's Cognitive Neuroscience Lab. Moderated by David Mellor, Director of Policy Initiatives for the Center for Open Science.

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.

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.

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.
Are you a funder interested in supporting research on the scientific process? Learn more about the communities mobilizing around the emerging field of metascience by visiting metascience.com. Funders are encouraged to review and adopt the practices overviewed at cos.io/top-funders as part of the solution to issues discussed during the Funders Forum.

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.
This webinar provides an overview of TOP Factor: its rationale, how it is being used, and how each of the TOP standards relate to individual scores. We also cover how to get involved with TOP Factor by inviting interested community members to suggest journals be added to the database and/or evaluate journal policies for submission.
This applied webinar explores best practices for communicating open educational data with a wide audience. Topics include different methods for encoding data, the use of color and considerations for color blindness, visual perception, common pitfalls, and methods for minimizing cognitive load. Dr. Daniel Anderson, from the University of Oregon, guides the audience through these topics, while also briefly discussing mediums for communication, including data dashboards to reach a larger and more diverse audience.

This webinar outlines how to use the free Open Science Framework (OSF) as an Electronic Lab Notebook for personal work or private collaborations. Fundamental features we cover include how to record daily activity, how to store images or arbitrary data files, how to invite collaborators, how to view old versions of files, and how to connect all this usage to more complex structures that support the full work of a lab across multiple projects and experiments.
This is a recording of a 45 minute introductory webinar on preprints. With our guest speaker Philip Cohen, we’ll cover what preprints/postprints are, the benefits of preprints, and address some common concerns researcher may have. We’ll show how to determine whether you can post preprints/postprints, and also demonstrate how to use OSF preprints (https://osf.io/preprints/) to share preprints. The OSF is the flagship product of the Center for Open Science, a non-profit technology start-up dedicated to improving the alignment between scientific values and scientific practices. Learn more at cos.io and osf.io, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this webinar, Doctors David Mellor (Center for Open Science) and Stavroula Kousta (Nature Human Behavior) discuss the Registered Reports publishing workflow and the benefits it may bring to funders of research. Dr. Mellor details the workflow and what it is intended to do, and Dr. Kousta discusses the lessons learned at Nature Human Behavior from their efforts to implement Registered Reports as a journal.
