Preregistration in Psychology

By using preregistration, researchers can demonstrate that their studies have been conducted, analyzed, and reported as initially planned.

ZPID promotes preregistration via PreReg in Psychology by offering a domain-specific repository (Repository Track) and, additionally, a free-of-charge data collection for high-quality preregistrations in the field of psychology (Lab Track).

Preregistrations submitted to PreReg in Psychology will be archived in PsychArchives, ZPID’s repository for psychological science, and receive a timestamp and a DOI (digital object identifier) to become citeable.

Successful applications for the Lab Track are awarded a free-of-charge data collection via the service PsychLab which comprises the option to finance the sample for an online study or to outsource the data collection of an eye tracking (or any pc-based) study to our on-site lab in Trier.
