The Pre-Registration Challenge officially launches!

A project I am involved with “The Pre-Registration Challenge” has officially launched today - its a great opportunity for you to try out a new methodological approach in the spirit of open science.

Full details about entering the challenge can be found here: https://cos.io/prereg/

If you decide to enter, you will be walked through a step-by-step pre-registration (specifying methods and analysis prior to data collection) on The Open Science Framework. As a small incentive, you could also win $1000…

If you’re in the London area and umming and ahhing about the whole thing, then as a further incentive I will happily take you out for a coffee and a pre-registration chat. I’ll pay for the coffee even if you don’t decide to try out pre-registration, so you have nothing to lose!
