"When you preregister your research, you're simply specifying your research plan in advance of your study and submitting it to a registry.
Preregistration separates hypothesis-generating (exploratory) from hypothesis-testing (confirmatory) research. Both are important. But the same data cannot be used to generate and test a hypothesis, which can happen unintentionally and reduce the credibility of your results. Addressing this problem through planning improves the quality and transparency of your research. This helps you clearly report your study and helps others who may wish to build on it."
This is a general registration template that can be used for any purpose.
Systematic Review Pre-registration Template
This form is static but usable as a viable option to pre-register a systematic review in OSF.
The form will go live natively in OSF in spring 2023.
Guidelines for creating and pre-registering your protocol as well as writing your systematic review for non-interventional research.
