Abstract

International journals have recently proposed new forms of scientific formats to reduce publication biases and p-hacking, two phenomena that may highly contribute to the lack of replicability in science. The Registered Report (RR) is a pre-registered study in which the hypothesis, sample size estimation, methodology, data analysis and expected results are publicly declared before data collection. The RR is submitted to journals accepting such a format and receive editorial- and peer-reviews (Stage1) that may reject, provide minor/major points, or accept the study. Therefore, if the RR receives In-Principle-Acceptance (IPA) the Authors must follow every passage they have reported in the manuscript without having the chance to make further changes. Interestingly, the journals guarantee the publication even if results do not match with the initial predictions. After IPA, data can be collected, and results and discussion can be submitted for the second phase of peer-review (Stage2). Exploratory analyses and interpretations are allowed but they are reported in specific sections of the final version of manuscript eventually. If Authors showed to be adherent and consistent with the RR content, the manuscript is finally published. The present part of the symposium aims at providing to the Italian scientific community the long journey that we experienced to reach the IPA as RR by introducing an example of experimental study conducted by our group and belonging to the cognitive neuroscience.
