Research Proposals and Funding

Methods Pre-Registration
Improve the quality and transparency of your research by registering your plan before you implement it. Better yet, over 260 journals will peer review and provisionally accept your study before you begin data collection, so publication doesn’t hinge upon the results.

Pre-registration templates are also a useful process tool to help you document your research.
