Over the past years, Registered Reports (RRs) have enjoyed increasing relevance in the field of scientific publishing. Introduced in 2013, RRs shift the peer-review process to before data collection and analysis. Thus, they guarantee that the decision to publish is based on the quality of the study’s design instead of the presence of significant findings. This format is generally revered to combat issues plaguing scientific literature, including p-hacking, cherry picking, and publication bias. Besides the prevention of questionable research practices (QRPs), the process of writing RRs proposes a structured approach which facilitates comprehensive research planning at multiple stages. The aim of this workshop is to briefly outline the characteristics of RRs and to then practice scientific writing using the unique aspects of RRs regarding hypothesis formulation and it’s translation into methodological planning.
