Registered Reports

Registered Reports are a form of empirical article in which the methods and proposed analyses are pre-registered and reviewed prior to research being conducted. This format seeks to neutralise a variety of inappropriate research practices, including inadequate statistical power, selective reporting of results, and publication bias. The review process is divided into two stages: Stage 1, reviewers assess study proposals before data is collected; Stage 2, reviewers consider the full study, including results and interpretation.

If you would like to submit a registered report to IPBE, please contact the Editor (mike.burnard @ for more information.
