Registered Reports

Registered Reports are an innovative article format aimed at reducing publication bias and promoting rigorous, transparent research practices. With Registered Reports, peer-review and the decision to accept the work for publication (in principle) precedes data collection & analysis, and is based on a research protocol that documents the research question, hypotheses, methods and a precise analysis plan. Nature Human Behaviour champions Registered Reports as part of our commitment to increased rigour in science and publishing. This collection features our published Stage 2 Registered Reports, research, comment and review on Registered Reports, as well as other content. In principle-accepted Stage 1 protocols that are not under embargo by their authors can be found in a dedicated space on figshare.
