Repository Track

Archive your study protocol in PsychArchives

For the Repository Track, you are free to submit protocols which can vary from a concise outline of your hypotheses, sampling plan, and planned analysis (basic requirements) to a more detailed stage 1 manuscript (a manuscript lacking only the results and discussion sections which may or may not have received a journal’s in-principle acceptance).

Choose "Repository Track" in the submission process, upload your protocol plus optional additional materials and supplement some metadata (authors, title, abstract...) prompted during the submission process. After ensuring that your submission complies with the formal requirements, your protocol will receive a timestamp and a DOI as it is entered in PsychArchives, an independent, reliable, and discipline-specific repository. It will then be publicly available either immediately or, if you prefer, after an embargo period.
