Psycho-Oncology: Introducing Registered Reports & CME for Reviewers

28 Nov 2018 10:03 AM | John Chagnon (Administrator)

What are Registered Reports?

Registered Reports are a new form of empirical article in which the methods and proposed analyses are preregistered and reviewed prior to research being conducted. The cornerstone of the Registered Reports format is that a significant part of the manuscript will be assessed prior to data collection, with the highest quality submissions accepted in advance. This format is designed to minimize bias in deductive science, while also allowing complete flexibility to conduct exploratory (unregistered) analyses and report serendipitous findings Psycho-Oncology is pleased to announce that the journal now accepts Registered Reports.

Why publish a Registered Report in Psycho-Oncology?

  • Benefit from peer review prior to conducting your experiment, data collection and analysis, helping to identify any issues with the study methodology
  • Initial presentation of your research study design will be published after in-principle acceptance followed by full paper publication after further analysis and peer review
  • Improve the potential impact of your research, with the knowledge that your research methodology has been independently reviewed

How do Registered Reports work?

  1. Submit your research question and study design
  2. The Psycho-Oncology editorial team will then send suitable submissions for peer review
  3. Your article will be rejected or accepted in principle for publication
  4. If your research is accepted, your study design will then be published in the journal
  5. Conduct your study and submit your final article for re-review
  6. If your study matches the approved research plan and draws appropriate conclusions, it will be published, regardless of the findings
  7. The final published article will be linked to your original, published study design
