Preregistration in Psychology

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

ZPID promotes preregistration via the PreReg in Psychology platform by offering a domain-specific repository (Repository Track) and, additionally, 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, to become citable, each will receive a timestamp and be assigned a DOI (digital object identifier).

All accepted Lab Track submissions will receive complimentary data collection via the PsychLab service, which provides either the funding for an online study sample or the opportunity to outsource the data collection of an eye tracking (or any PC-based) study to our on-site lab in Trier.
