Workshop "Advanced Topics in Preregistration"

In psychological research, preregistration is widely encouraged as part of a transparent and rigorous research process. Numerous tutorials, introductory papers and templates are available to support (early career) researchers in taking their first steps towards preregistering empirical studies. However, as usual, the devil is in the detail, and many practical problems are not covered by introductory tutorials, for example: What is the right degree of detail? What to do if my study doesn’t follow the standard experimental approach? What to do if the planned analyses are complex? How to deal with deviations from preregistered plans? In this hands-on preregistration workshop, we will discuss these and other questions surrounding practical problems of preregistration. Participants are encouraged to contribute their own questions and expertise.

Prerequisites: Participants should have a basic knowledge of the preregistration process. Having worked on a preregistration is an advantage, but not required. Specific questions can be sent to the trainer in advance of the workshop by email to angelika.m.stefan [at]
