WHAT IS ASPREDICTED?

    AsPredicted is a platform that makes it easy for researchers to pre-register their studies, and easy for others to read and evaluate those pre-registrations. To pre-register a study on AsPredicted, a researcher answers nine simple questions about their research design and analyses. The platform then generates a time-stamped, single page .pdf document that includes a unique URL for verification.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
  • One author creates the pre-registration.
  • Participating authors are emailed, requesting approval.
  • If all approve, it is saved but remains private until an author makes it public; or remains private forever.(Why?)
  • Authors may share an anonymous version of the pre-registration with reviewers.
  • If made public, the final .pdf (sample) is automatically stored in the web-archive.
WHAT IF THINGS DON'T GO 'AS PREDICTED'?
You can just say so in the paper:
  • 'Contrary to expectations, we found that...'
  • 'Unexpectedly, we also found that...'
  • 'In addition to the analyses we pre-registered we also ran...'
  • 'We encountered an unexpected situation, and followed our Standard Operating Procedure' (.pdf)
